Legendary Car Guy is confident in predicting Will Power will drink the milk at the Indy 500. Three reasons: a) he won an IndyCar race on Indianapolis Motor Speedway this very same month b) he looks like Tom Cruise, and c) his name is *Will Power.*
In first week of May, Will Power won the Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis. He fought off Graham Rahal (son of Indy winner Bobby Rahal) late in the race to grab the win.
Las Vegas odds for the winner of the 2015 Indy 500 (as of May 13) favor Helio Castroneves and Jaun Montoya at 5/1. But Will Power is close at 7/1.
Legendary Car Guy admitted that it was hard not to back Castroneves because of his memorable win on Dancing with the Stars in Season 5. Oh, and he had to overlook the fact that Castroneves has won three times before at the Indy 500.

Six past race winners are competing: spanning from 1996 champion Buddy Lazier in his own Lazier Racing Partners entry through last year’s winner Ryan Hunter-Reay. Others include Juan Pablo Montoya (2000), Scott Dixon (2008), Tony Kanaan (2013) and dancing Helio Castroneves (2001, 2002, 2009).
Will Power also won our heart for the middle finger salute he gave an IndyCar official in Loudon, New Hampshire a few years ago. The official was later dismissed. Where is Loudon? New Hampshire. Where is New Hampshire? Not sure.
Below is a furious Will Power who expresses indignation at IndyCar officials in Loudon.
