Kanaan may have the best shot of all.
"I think Tony's obviously got momentum, especially at this place, and I think all of the positive energy from everybody to him and to me and to the Ganassi program could make it a good chance to win," Hand said.
Barrichello and Kanaan aren't the only familiar names in town.
Christian Fittipaldi, the 1995 Indy 500 rookie of the year whose uncle, Emerson, won two championships and two 500s; AJ Allmendinger, who competed in May's 500 and was a regular on the Cup circuit until failing a drug test last summer; and former Indy starter Max Papis will all compete in the Grand-Am race.
American Jordan Taylor, however, took the pole after turning a fast lap of 1 minute, 22.251 seconds Thursday afternoon. Chad McCumbee, the top qualifier in the Grand-AM ST Series, also is a familiar face to Americans. He played Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the television movie "3: The Dale Earnhardt Story."
But it's Kanaan who will be the most watched.
"It's kind of weird doing a turn one on the opposite side, but I'll get used to it," Kanaan said. "I'm just going to relax with my son. I'm going to take him to the museum to do a tour and show him around a little bit. He's never been here."
