I keep hearing about this rookie Fernando Alonso leading up to the Indy 500. Apparently he put in a super impressive qualifier. And has a great chance of winning. Got me wondering how many rookies have ever won this race? Turns out, the answer is 10 drivers.
Think we will see a rookie win back to back years? I started watching this event just last year. And that was really cool to see Rossi win. I'll be rooting for Alonso this time around, even though there seems to be quite a few rooting AGAINST him.
