INDYCAR Announces New Doubleheader Events For 2020
The NTT INDYCAR SERIES has released an updated 2020 race calendar featuring several modifications.
Three events already scheduled on the series calendar will now become doubleheader weekends, including INDYCAR’s upcoming race weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Prior to the originally scheduled Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio on Sunday, Aug. 9, the stars of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES will square off in another championship-points paying event Saturday, Aug. 8. Limited tickets are on sale at MidOhio.com.
In addition, 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. Tickets are on sale for the weekend, which will also feature the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series and the ARCA Menards Series.
IMS will add a road course race Friday, Oct. 2 before the already scheduled INDYCAR Harvest GP on Saturday, Oct. 3. Spectators can register for pre-sale tickets on the INDYCAR website.
“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, mutual decisions between the series and promoters following consultations and monitoring of the local situations.
The NTT INDYCAR SERIES remains on track to run 14 races in the 2020 season. The full, updated schedule can be found at INDYCAR.com/Schedule.
