The Indy 500 will be held this weekend for the 106th time. The race will take place on Sunday, May 29th and get started at 12:45 p.m. ET from Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The Indianapolis spring weather does not appear to be much of a factor during Sunday’s race with a low percentage chance of precipitation.

Scott Dixon is the betting favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook with +550 odds. Last year’s winner was Helio Castroneves, but he has +2800 odds to win it again for the 17th best chance to repeat.

Below we’ll take a look at the weather projected for the Indianapolis 500 this weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, with info courtesy of AccuWeather. As always with the weather, forecasts are all tentative.
