This year's Indianapolis 500 has an old-school feel.

For the first time since 1987, two drivers -- Helio Castroneves and Dario Franchitti -- are likely to be chasing their fourth Indy win on May 26.

And for the first time they've run a full-season IndyCar schedule since 1991, Roger Penske and Chip Ganassi will begin Saturday's opening day practice without a win in their pocket.

Everyone seems to have a chance -- from Takuma Sato, who crashed trying to pass Franchitti for the lead on the last lap in 2012, to Marco Andretti, who is still trying to put an end to the family hex.
