The Indianapolis 500 this season already has garnered lots of attention with the addition of two former winners in Jacques Villeneuve and Juan Pablo Montoya, as well as NASCAR interloper Kurt Busch.

On Friday it was announced that the self proclaimed Greatest Spectacle in Racing would get a qualifying face lift when the gates open in May at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The new format will see three qualifying rounds over two days on the weekend preceding the 98th running of the Indy 500.
