"The greatest spectacle in racing" is getting a futuristic face lift this year. In addition to a brand new aero package, the high-speed machines of IndyCar will feature LED panels that display each driver's positioning at this year's Indy 500. Even though many tracks feature multiple scoring towers and scoreboards, fans aren't guaranteed to have a clear view of them, and at street or road courses there's no view of the entire course. That can make it difficult to make out which driver is where in the standings, especially when the race leaders are running in lapped traffic.
