Record-setting temperatures are expected on Sunday for the Indianapolis 500. There is a head advisory for all of central Indiana on Sunday including the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The hottest Indianapolis 500 on record was 92 degrees back in 1937. That record could be in jeopardy on Sunday.
The escalated temperature will make for a much hotter track temperature. A hotter racing surface equals more rubber on the track which leads to a lot of loose race cars.
