Gearing Up: Herta, Kirkwood Take Sebring Boost to Thermal

Don’t be surprised if Colton Herta and Kyle Kirkwood have a bit more bounce in their step as they head to Southern California later this week with the rest of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES for The Thermal Club $1 Million Challenge. Two heat races will set the field for a 12-car all-star race with $1.756 million at stake – the largest purse for an INDYCAR SERIES race outside of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge. Each heat race will consist of 10 laps or be timed at 20 minutes. The top six advancing cars from each heat race will make up the 12-car field for The Thermal Club $1 Million Challenge. There will be plenty of track time this week for NTT INDYCAR SERIES teams besides qualifying and racing at Thermal. That event is the third points-paying race of the 2024 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season and the last race before the Month of May at Indianapolis.
