90th Indy 500

< Back 05/22/2006

Monday, May 22, 2006 LAKEVILLE, Conn. – In this year’s Indy 500, Skip Barber Racing is again very well-represented as 13 of the 33 starters have Skip Barber training on their racing resumes. For example, Helio Castroneves, Dan Wheldon and Tony Kanaan all did Skip Barber Advanced Racing Schools early in their careers, while drivers such as Marco Andretti and Bryan Herta used the entire Skip Barber ladder system to advance their careers.

Here’s the complete 2006 Indy 500 starting grid, with Skip Barber-trained drivers in boldface.

Good luck to all!
