INDIANAPOLIS -- May is the month of the year around which the NTT IndyCar Series revolves. It begins with the IndyCar Grand Prix on the grand prix circuit of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Then on Memorial Day Sunday, the cannon fires at 6:00 a.m. (which indicates the gates are open) and over 200,000 people pour into the facility to drink the day away, take in a concert in the Snake Pit and watch the annual running of the Indianapolis 500. Afterwards, the turnaround at Indianapolis begins for the next major event, the Brickyard 400; be it in September this year or on Independence Day weekend in 2020.
Austin Dillon earned the Busch Pole Award at Talladega Superspeedway and will lead the field to green for Sunday's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series GEICO 500.
After a three way battle in the closing laps, Truex holds off Logano and Bowyer to win the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway.
