McLaren Honda Andretti driver Fernando Alonso is looking forward to this magic moment as he gets ready to participate in his first Verizon IndyCar Series race, the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil.

The double Formula One champion was asked by the Advanced Auto Parts Radio Network what he has enjoyed most during the month of May and Alonso said that the off track action with the fans has been as fun as the on track activity.

Alonso rolls off the grid from the middle of the second row in fifth place just behind his Andretti Autosport team mate’s Alexander Rossi and Takuma Sato.

Speaking ahead of the race, Verizon IndyCar Series veteran and driver of the No.10 NTT DATA Honda for Chip Ganassi Racing, Tony Kanaan who won here in 2013 said that has told Alonso to enjoy the race.
