Green Flag: Big Machine Spiked Coolers Grand Prix

Brickyard Weekend takes on a new meaning this weekend as the NTT INDYCAR SERIES returns to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course for a second race this season, in conjunction with the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series. For the first time ever, all three major racing series in America, the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series, will be on track today on the 14-turn, 2.439-mile IMS road course. The last INDYCAR road race at IMS, the GMR Grand Prix on May 15, featured just one caution period for three laps. Only twice has the winner of an NTT INDYCAR SERIES race on the 14-turn, 2.439-mile IMS road course gone on to win the NTT INDYCAR SERIES championship in the same season. The IMS road course is a smooth circuit with flat curbing, resembling a European-style racetrack. This makes it one of the more unique tracks on the NTT INDYCAR SERIES schedule. The IMS road course is an FIA Grade 1-certified racetrack that was originally designed for Formula One.
