INDIANOPOLIS – Miles Teller feels the need, the need for speed. The “Top Gun: Maverick” actor will receive it as an honorary starter for what is set to become the fastest Indianapolis 500 in history.
Teller will wave a green flag for “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” at the Indianapolis racetrack on Sunday.
The 35-year-old Teller will play Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw, the son of the beloved late navigator “Goose”, in the long-awaited sequel “Top Gun”. The film will be released nationwide on Friday, two days before the 500th.
“Miles is no stranger to action-packed roles, and waving the green flag for the 33 racers involved in history races will give him a similar adrenaline rush,” said IMS President Doug Bols, adding that it would be a “day when he” never I will forget ».
Scott Dixon broke the Indianapolis record of 500 poles by running a qualifying run of more than 234 miles per hour. He will lead a field with 33 cars to the green flag on Sunday.
