I think Danica is rad. She's probably had to deal with a lot of crap. I'd love to see her come out on top!

Marco Andretti. He has youth and experience and he came close last year so he should win it this year. Hopefully he made the right detail in training to win the whole thing this time. That, and it runs in his blood.

My pick is Danica Patrick because in this day and age it is easy for a woman to be both hot and powerful.

I hate to be predictable, but I am going with Danica Patrick. For a couple reasons, the most obvious reason, GIRL POWER! I love to see a woman make it in a field that is primarily dominated by men. And secondly, I have personally met her and she is so sweet, down to earth, and gorgeous! If that wasn't a girly answer, then I don't know what is!

Jason Priestly. I have a gut feeling.

Helio Castroneves. All of the Dancing with the Stars family will be cheering for Helio, including me. He showed the heart of a champion by winning Dancing last season and he's leading the IndyCar championship points going into the Indianapolis 500 -- we're all hoping he crosses the yard of bricks in first place.

Danica Patrick because you have to be aggressive to win at Indy's track and she is.

I'm gonna go with Danica because this is her year and she is just on a roll! She's more than just a hot girl in a swimsuit she can kick your butt!

Danica Patrick. I think Danica is a ball breaking speed demon who is proving the world wrong when it comes to women drivers.

Helio Castroneves! Knowing Helio not only as a friend, but a competitor, I believe there is no other driver out there that brings the desire, expertise, commitment and sportsmanship that Helio brings.

Danica Patrick. As a supporter of women in sports, how could I pick against Patrick? Plus, she has momentum on her side after her win last month.

I am thrilled that again this year there are three women in the field and it would be great to see Danica Patrick, Sarah Fisher or Milka Duno in Victory Lane. It is a great feeling that these three women are carrying forward with the traditions that Janet Guthrie and Lyn St. James started at Indianapolis and Danica validated with her win earlier this year in Japan, and we look forward to the day where there are more women in the field of this great event.

I like Danica this week. She finally got her first win and she's on a roll.

Helio Castroneves. He won Dancing with the Stars plus he has won the Indy 500 before in 2001 and 2002, which means he's got a great shot at winning again.

I'm pulling for Danica Patrick because, and I mean this with all due respect, I think it would be revolutionary to see a woman pull across the finish line while applying make up in the rear view mirror. I don't think it's ever been done!

Danica Patrick. Danica is really on top of her game right now. I think this is her year. Girls Rock!

Marco Andretti. Every year, whatever year, I go with an Andretti at the wheel going back to Mario. This year, of course, it is Marco Andretti.
