Best bets for Indianapolis 500, NASCAR at Dover

Simon Pagenaud won last year's Indianapolis 500 -- who will win this year's delayed edition? Brian Spurlock/USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis 500 has always been held in May. But the 104th edition, scheduled for May 24, had to be moved amid the coronavirus pandemic and will now take place Sunday.

That makes for an especially big weekend for racing fans, because there's also a double dip of NASCAR races in Dover, Delaware. The Cup Series' Drydene 311 will take place on Saturday (4 p.m. ET), with the second race at the same time Sunday.

Senior writer Ryan McGee and editor Scott Symmes both cashed in when Chase Elliott won the GoBowling.com 235 on the Daytona International Speedway road course last week. Meanwhile, Simon Pagenaud will attempt to defend his Indy crown Sunday.

Who will take the checkered flags this weekend? McGee, Symmes and Fantasy's Mike Clay offer their best bets.
