McLaren Racing announced on Tuesday that Fernando Alonso will run the No.66 on his Chevrolet powered NTT IndyCar for month of May and the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on May 26.

The reasoning behind Alonso choosing the number 66 is the fact that McLaren’s first Indianapolis 500 win came in a Penske run car driven by Mark Donohue driving car car No.66 in 1972.
