Daria and Helio go head-to-head for fourth Indianapolis win

THREE-time winners Daria Franchitti and Helio Castroneves will be out to join the exclusive Indianapolis 500 four-time winners club when the 2013 edition of the great race is held this morning.

A.J. Foyt, Al Unser and Rick Mears are the only drivers to win four times.

Australia will be represented by Ryan Briscoe and Will Power who will have to overcome his disappointing record on oval tracks to take the checkered flag.

Before the race starts, 35 runners who were denied the opportunity to finish the Boston Marathon last month because of two terrorist bombings will run from turn four to the fnish line.
