INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Scott Speed wants to become an Indy winner and the first $5 million man.
The American who has raced in Formula One and NASCAR will return to Indianapolis in the No. 20 car as he attempts to make his Indianapolis 500 debut with Dragon Racing. The race is May 29.
He also plans to compete for Jay Penske's team at the season-ending race in Las Vegas, making him eligible for the $5 million bonus offered by IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard to any driver from another series who wins the race.
If Speed makes the 33-car starting grid, he would become the third driver in track history to start the 500, the Brickyard 400 and the U.S. Grand Prix. The others are Jacques Villeneuve and Juan Pablo Montoya, who both won the 500.
