Welcome to SportsNation! On Friday, ESPN.com IndyCar reporter John Oreovicz stops by to talk about the buildup to this year's Indy 500, which takes place May 26 on ABC.

Oreovicz attended his first Indianapolis 500 as a teenager in 1978 and still hasn't broken the open-wheel racing habit. He has covered nearly 400 Indy-style races for National Speed Sport News and other racing publications around the world, and he co-authored A Winning Adventure, a history of Honda's successful Champ Car engine program. Known as "Oreo" within the IndyCar paddock, John resides within walking distance of his home track, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
