68 was commonly associated with the Penske team at Indy. After Mike Hiss (pictured above) Tom Sneva drove the #68 in 1975

#68 was also synonymous with Helio Castroneves, who piloted the car to his first Indy 500 in 2001. Note the lack of Marlboro sponsorship on the car, due to a contract between Marlboro and CART.

Those IndyCars from the early 2000's were everything but pretty.

Carpenter's first. And the great Battistini's last race.

Car 66 was the last number used in Darrell Waltrip's full time career. Waltrip's biggest highlight with the number came in 2000 when he qualified second for the Brickyard 400.

Two notable Indycars have carried the number 63. The first was in 1982, when aircraft designer Dean Wilson was assigned the task of designing an experimental car to fully exploit the benefits of ground effect. His creation, the Eagle Aircraft Special, was one of the most maligned cars of all time, 10mph down on the next slowest car and with driver Kenny Hamilton abandoning the project after a spate of accidents caused by instability.

More recently, the #63 has been associated with Britain's Pippa Mann. Pippa has competed in five of the past six 500s driving #63, including being the sole female in 2016 and 2017. Mann's best finish was 17th in 2017, and is expected to make another attempt at the race this year.

I’d hope so. F1 cars tend to be a bit thin on the ground when we’re still in the high numbers.
