NBC has announced that Mike Tirico and former INDYCAR driver Danica Patrick will return to host pre race coverage of next Sunday’s 108th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.

Seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson will join Tirico and Patrick for the pre-race show before competing in the Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR event that evening.

For the sixth consecutive year, “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” will be called by NBC Sports’ lead INDYCAR play-by-play voice Leigh Diffey and analyst Townsend Bell, with analyst James Hinchcliffe in his third consecutive year of duty. Bell and Hinchcliffe have 21 Indy 500 starts between them.
