2016 Indy 500: Millions on the Line for Race No. 100

Part of the Triple Crown of Motorsports, the 2016 Indianapolis 500-Mile Race is the latest installment in a tradition that has roots dating back over a century. In 2015 — more than a century after the first 500-mile race in French Lick, Ind. — Juan Pablo Montoya became the defending champion after netting $2.45 million for winning the fourth-closest race in Indy history. It was the second Indy 500 victory for the Colombian driver and Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet.

The biggest prize in the race’s history was awarded in 2009, when Helio Castroneves took home $3.05 million. Such extravagant purses haven’t always been a part of racing history. Ray Harroun, who won the inaugural race in 1911, earned $14,250, or a little over $350,000 in today’s money.
