The hype is back at Indy and everyone wants to win the 100th

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Tony Kanaan spent the final practice before the Indianapolis 500 talking to the race track.

He wanted to be kind to the old lady, to land in her good graces before the historic 100th running of "The Greatest Spectacle In Racing."

"I think this track will pick the winner. Whatever she picks, it's going to be a very lucky guy," Kanaan said Friday after landing atop the leaderboard at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. "I'm trying to massage the track a little bit, talk to her nicely and then see if she will pick me on Sunday."
