The official entry list for the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Penngrade Motor Oil has been released this morning.

Only 33 cars have been entered filled with 17 Hondas and 16 Chevrolet.

Six former winners of the race are entered: Juan Pablo Montoya, Helio Castroneves, Buddy Lazier, Scott Dixon, Ryan Hunter-Reay and Tony Kanaan.

The rookie class is made up of Max Chilton, Spencer Pigot, Stefan Wilson, Matt Brabham and Alexander Rossi, the largest class since 2010 when six were entered as well.

Lazier’s effort is under the Lazier/Burns Racing banner and finally came together after the team scrambled to get the necessary aero kit upgrades from Chevrolet and has changed numbers from the traditional #91 to the #4.
