Castroneves, Dixon among celebrities' Indy 500 picks

Publish date:

David Foster(16-time Grammy Award-winning composer): Danica Patrick

"Because Indy is her kind of race. She can definitely keep up with the boys and she definitely can be the first woman to win it and we should just get it out of the way this year. Her team is also primed for it. Michael Andretti was a great driver and he's found his groove as an owner."

Parnelli Jones (1963 Indy 500 winner): Scott Dixon

"That's a very good question. To tell you the truth it's going to be Scott Dixon. He has qualified for the front row and he has been quick all month. He's been quiet but I think he is going to be one of the guys to beat. Dario Franchitti is also good. Both Ganassi cars are great but I think it's going to be Scott Dixon."

Jillian Michaels (trainer, The Biggest Loser): Danica Patrick

"She's my girl!"

Chris McDonald (actor,Happy Gilmore): Dario Franchitti

"I'm pulling for the triple crown."

Zach Levi (actor, Tangled) :Helio Castroneves

"'Cause he'll dance and drink lots of milk."

Omar Miller (actor, CSI: Miami): Scott Dixon

"We're all pulling for the home team and he's in the No. 2 position."

Mekhi Phifer (actor, ER): Scott Dixon

"Because Omar Miller is."

Roger Cross (actor, 24): Paul Tracy

"Because he's a really good Canadian dude."

William Fichtner (actor, Invasion):Alex Tagliani

"Good guys need to finish first too."

Marshall Faulk (former-NFL running back): Helio Castroneves

"Because he won last time I was here in 2001."
