5.17.13 (via Race Review Online) – To really make your mark on history in the Izod IndyCar Series or racing in general, an Indianapolis 500 victory on a drivers resume will forever make him a champion and a legend.
Not just anyone can win at the famed 2.5-mile oval. It takes a great amount of skill as drivers are pulling 3-4 g-forces in each of the four corners 200 times on race day. Most people are picking drivers like Helio Castroneves, Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon as favorites to win this year’s 97th Running of the 500.
I say watch out for E.J. Viso.
Viso is off to the best start of his career and coming to Indianapolis with a lot of momentum. The 28-year old is in his first season with Andretti Autosport and has finishes of seventh, 12th, 22nd and sixth to start the season off. He earned his first career front row start in the last race at Brazil and has shown flashes of brilliance.
