INDIANAPOLIS - The NTT INDYCAR SERIES released an updated 2020 race calendar featuring several changes which have resulted in the 104th Running of the Indianapolis 500 becoming the next event on the INDYCAR's schedule set to run August 23rd.
Three events already scheduled on the series calendar were to become doubleheader weekends, including INDYCAR’s upcoming race weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
However, INDYCAR and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course have agreed to postpone The Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio scheduled for Aug. 7-9 until a date to be determined in September or October. This decision was made through communication with local health officials given the current environment.
The INDYCAR team continues to work with all of its partners and the local government to identify a date later this year when the The Honda Indy 200 can be held at Mid-Ohio. More information will be forthcoming as it becomes available. Visit midohio.com for ongoing updates.
The race weekends at World Wide Technology Raceway in August and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course in October will become doubleheader weekends. WWTR will feature races Saturday, Aug. 29 and Sunday, Aug. 30. IMS will add a road course race Friday, Oct. 2 before the already scheduled event Saturday, Oct. 3.
“Our race fans have loved the exciting doubleheader action of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES this year at Road America and Iowa Speedway,” Penske Entertainment Corp. President & CEO Mark Miles said. “We look forward to giving them even more world-class entertainment this season at three of the most exciting racetracks on the NTT INDYCAR SERIES calendar.”
INDYCAR’s race at Portland International Raceway and doubleheader weekend at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca have been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The cancellation of both event weekends was a mutual decision between the series and promoters following close consultation and monitoring of the local situation. The series looks forward to returning to both venues in 2021.
