Frontstretch Breakdown: 2008 Indianapolis 500

*In A Nutshell:* Scott Dixon took the pole for this race, his latest assertion that he is the driver to beat this year; and heading into the Indy 500, he gave no one any reason to think differently. Several drivers took turns at the front of the biggest event in open-wheel racing -- including teammate Dan Wheldon, Tony Kanaan, and Marco Andretti -- but Dixon always lurked right behind them.

And owners know this to be true, as well. Here's the problem : they just can’t find one. There has never been a legitimate candidate to fill such a role. Really, the closest NASCAR has ever come to having a star female driver on and off the track was the talented Janet Guthrie, who competed in NASCAR sporadically from 1976-1980. During Guthrie’s 33-race career, she recorded 5 Top 10 finishes in second-tier equipment.
