Drivers lock in milk selections ahead of 2024 Indy 500

It's one of the most famous traditions from the Indianapolis 500 - find out which milk the 2204 drivers have chosen if they win!

You've just won the Indianapolis 500, have celebrated with your team and family - or in the case of Josef Newgarden in 2023, jump into the crowd. 

You're then greeted with the laurel wreath and then handed a glass of ice cold milk in one of the more famous Indy 500 traditions. 

The tradition of milk drinking in victory lane started out as essentially a marketing ploy by the Indiana Diary Association and the rest as they say is history. 

Drivers have a choice of full, skimmed or 2% milk to choose from, although Juan Pablo Montoya has opted for chocolate milk in the past and 1993 winner Emerson Fittipaldi infamously drank orange juice instead of milk - something some locals still hold against the Brazilian. 

But the milk choices the 33 drivers have made for the 2024 Indy 500 have been locked in - and there is a common theme. 

The table below is in grid order.
