PLAYERS: Buddy Lazier
Buddy Lazier has become the fourth former winner of the Indianapolis 500 to have an entry submitted for the 97th running of "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing." Lazier Partners Racing, owned by Buddy's father and 1981 "500" starter Bob Lazier, will field the No. 91 Chevrolet with no backup "T" car. It serves as the 34th current entry for this year's race. In 1996, Buddy won the first "500" of the Indy Racing League (now IZOD IndyCar Series) era. He last ran at the Brickyard in 2008, finishing 17th for Hemelgarn Johnson Racing after breaking into the field on Bump Day, and failed to qualify for the 2009 event. Buddy has five Top-5 finishes (the most recent of those being a fifth-place effort in 2005 for Panther Racing) over 16 career starts at Indy.
