The 2022 Indianapolis 500 on Sunday features several storylines, including pole sitter Scott Dixon.

Dixon remarkably has just one Indy 500 win (a lot of drivers would love to say that they won this race once); the 41-year-old Australian has five poles at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, including four of the last eight Indy 500s.

Defending champion Helio Castroneves can set a race record for Indy 500 wins if he repeats on Sunday. That'll be a challenge from a 27th-place starting position. Only three times has a winner come from at least that far back.

Don't forget about 7-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, who is starting 12th. A qualifying slip up aside, few drivers in the field has as many laps on the track as Johnson. The problem? This will be his first Indy 500 start after 18 such starts at the speedway in the NASCAR Cup Series.

Here's what you need to know about the Indianapolis 500.
