Helio Castroneves has already won the Indianapolis 500 three times, and this Sunday he's hoping to become the fourth driver to take home four titles.
"What a great opportunity I have here to tie the record with three legends," Castroneves told CNBC's "Closing Bell" Friday.
Only A.J. Foyt, Al Unser and Rick Mears have taken the championship four times.
In a nod to the past, Castroneves is using the same paint scheme and design that Mears once used.
"I feel like the yellow color brings me a lot of luck," he said. "I feel we are in good shape … I can't wait to go out there Sunday."
The winner of 98th Indy 500 will pocket about $2.5 million.
