INDYCAR Pre-Race Media: Top 5 sleepers for Saturday’s GMR Grand Prix (2:30 p.m. ET, NBC, INDYCAR Radio Network)

Team Penske is 7-for-9 on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course. They’re clearly the ones to beat. Can anyone stop them on Saturday? Well, if so, look no further than this list of sleepers.

Graham Rahal

Worth a look. Rahal, has a top 10 in all but one start here including two runner-ups. He has a top seven finish in all but one race this season too.

Scott McLaughlin

He’s in a Penske car but has never raced on the road course here before. For these odds, why not though?

Felix Rosenqvist

He qualified on the pole in 2019. He was fifth in the first race of the doubleheader weekend in October too.

Rinus VeeKay

This is a great sleeper choice. Spencer Pigot did great in this car before VeeKay and the Dutch second year driver won a pole here last October in it to go along with two top fives in three tries on the road course in 2020. He’s had three top 10s in four races run in 2021.

Jack Harvey

He’s at his best here. He’s never started worse than seventh including a podium in 2019 and three top eights in four tries. He’s had a great start to the season and sits 10th in points.
