 NOTES:
      The Angie's List Grand Prix of Indianapolis on Indianapolis Motor
 Speedway's road course is the fifth race on the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series
 schedule.
 
 This 2.439-mile, 14-turn road course incorporates portions of turn 1 and 2 as
 well as the frontstretch of the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The racing
 will feature a rolling start and will run clockwise, the opposite of the
 Indianapolis 500. Drivers will have at minimum four unique opportunities to
 pass, including the revised turn 1, a 90-degree right-hand corner.
 
 The IMS road course was initially laid for the United States Grand Prix
 Formula One race that ran from 2000-07.
 
 About 18 hours after the checkered flag flies on the Angie's List Grand Prix
 of Indianapolis, the 2.5-mile oval opens for the initial practice session for
 the Indianapolis 500.
 
 Simon Pagenaud won the inaugural race on the road course at this track last
 year. Pagenaud, who drove for Schmidt Peterson Hamilton Motorsports during the
 2014 season, gambled on fuel late in the race and then held off Ryan Hunter-
 Reay and Helio Castroneves in the closing laps for his third career win in the
 series. Pagenaud is driving a new fourth entry for Team Penske this season.
 
 There have been four different winners in as many IndyCar races this season:
 Juan Pablo Montoya (St. Petersburg, Florida), James Hinchcliffe (NOLA
 Motorsports Park), Scott Dixon (Long Beach, California) and Josef Newgarden
 (Barber Motorsports Park).
 
 The next race is the 99th running of the Indianapolis 500 on May 24. Hunter-
 Reay is the defending race champion.
