Tony Stewart is trying to win his third Brickyard 400 in front of his home-state fans. Jimmie Johnson is vying for a record fifth. That's just two of the storylines to watch Sunday, writes John Oreovicz.
Juan Pablo Montoya came close to winning the Brickyard as a full-time Sprint Cup driver. Now a full-time IndyCar driver, he's back to give it another shot with powerful Team Penske, John Oreovicz writes.
Richard Childress -- then a hardscrabble owner/driver in NASCAR -- got his first look at Indianapolis Motor Speedway 35 years ago and said, "We could do it." And that's where it really started, writes Ed Hinton.
