Ahead of the Indianapolis 500 race, NBC announced that host Mike Tirico and studio analyst Danica Patrick would return to NBC Sports' Indy 500 coverage for the sixth consecutive year.

The press release issued by NBC stated:

In the recent 108th Indianapolis 500 race on May 26, 42-year-old Patrick donned an all-yellow outfit for the main race at Indianapolis. On Instagram Danica reposted a photo of herself with former IndyCar Series driver Dario Franchitti's wife.
