The biggest race of the Indy car circuit is back for Memorial Day weekend. The Indianapolis 500 gets started at 12:45 p.m. and will air on NBC. If you are not in front of a TV, you can view the race via live online stream at NBCSports.com/live or through the NBC Sports app.

You will need a cable log-in to stream the race. If you don’t have one, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream it.

Scott Dixon heads into race day as the favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, with odds installed at +325 to win. He’s a heavy favorite, followed by Colton Herta at +850, Patricio O’Ward at +1000, Alexander Rossi at +1200, and Tony Kanaan and Josef Newgarden at +1500.

Dixon claimed the pole position in qualifying and Herta and Rinus VeeKay join him on the front row. Last year, Dixon led the most laps in the Indy 500 at 111, but finished second behind Takuma Sato. Graham Rahal, Santino Ferrucci, and Josef Newgarden made up the rest of the top five.
