(INDIANAPOLIS) - The entry list for the 93rd running of the Indianapolis 500 was released on Monday.

The list contains 28 different car-driver combinations with four former winners; Helio Castroneves, Dan Wheldon, Dario Franchitti and defending champion Scott Dixon; entered.

Four rookies will be attempting to make their first Indianapolis 500 starts as Raphael Matos, Mike Conway, Stanton Barrett and Robert Doornbos are entered.

Next month's track activities will include Scott Sharp, who has a ride after missing last year's race, and Paul Tracy, who has not raced at the Brickyard since his controversial second-place finish to Castroneves in 2002.
