The You're Trying Too Hard Super Bowl Moment for today

Some people will do anything to horn in on the NFL's big show.

And so here we have a release from IndyCar, which includes, in honor of Super Bowl XLVI, a list of significant 46s in Indianapolis 500 history.

Such as:

* Car number 46 has appeared in the 500 13 times.

* The best finish for a No. 46 in the 500 was third by Gary Bettenhausen in 1980.

* The best start for a No. 46 was 11th in 1932.

*A 46-second lap around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway equates to 195.652 mph.

* A lap at 46 mph would take 3 minutes and 15.65 seconds.

* The 46th 500 was won by Rodger Ward in 1962.
