Two cars with rich histories. Danny Sullivan's famous spin-'n'-win in 1985 was achieved in this #5 March 85C-Cosworth. Besides it sits Al Unser Sr.'s #25 March 86C which went from being a show car in a hotel lobby to sitting in Victory Lane at the end of the 1987 Indy 500.

Not for the first time, Castroneves will be running the "Yellow Submarine" Pennzoil colors. It was in this classic livery that he narrowly missed out on victory in the 2014 Indianapolis 500.

Helio's hoping to do the same as Rick, who twice drove the Pennzoil colors to Victory Lane; in the 1984 March 84 Cosworth shown here and again in ’88 piloting a Penske PC17-Chevrolet.
