The IndyCar series will kick off their 2014 season with today's Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Heading into today's 2014 IndyCar season opener, all eyes will be on pole sitter Takuma Sato and his No. 14 A.J. Foyt Racing entry who will be looking for his second IndyCar career victory. Sato started second at the 2013 visit but would finish 8th.

Tony Kanaan and his No. 10 Chevrolet will start second as the former champion makes his race debut in the Chip Ganassi prepared IndyCar. Kanaan stepped into the seat during the off-season which was previously held by the retired Dario Franchitti.

Leading off row two will be Andretti Autosport driver Ryan Hunter-Reay with Will Power and his No. 12 Chevrolet starting fourth.

Penske drivers have won the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg five times - including Power in 2010, and Helio Castroneves in 2012 - in nine tries.

The bad news for the rest of the field is that no driver has ever won from lower than 9th. However, it has been done twice (Graham Rahal in 2008, Dan Wheldon in 2005) , so a driver can make a difference at St. Pete. As can yellows.

So enjoy the IndyCar 2014 season opening event on the streets of St. Petersburg! Its sure to be a thriller.
