Well, now I’m mad that I didn’t buy tickets to the Indianapolis 500. Milo Ventimiglia from “This is Us” and “Gilmore Girls” will be in Indy on Sunday to wave the green flag.

“Milo’s passion for racing and speed make him the perfect choice for this exciting Race Day honor,” IMS President J. Douglas Boles said in a press release. “We can’t wait to welcome him to the Racing Capital of the World and know he’ll enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience atop the flag stand on Indy 500 Race Day.”

He’s not the first “This Is Us” actor to kick off the race. Justin Hartley, who plays adult Kevin, had the job in 2019.

If you won’t be at the race on Sunday, you can watch it live on WTHR.
