Track Talk: Detroit offers twice the fun with doubleheaders

Following the success of Super Bowl XL in Detroit in 2006, Roger Penske, who served as Chairman of the city’s Super Bowl host committee, spearheaded the revival of the grand prix.
Since 2015, the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear has hosted the only doubleheader race weekend on the NTT IndyCar Series schedule.
The unique format has created some memorable moments, including Team Penske winning both races in 2014 with Will Power and Castroneves and Graham Rahal sweeping the weekend with back-to- back race wins in 2017 — 25 years after his father won the first race on Belle Isle.
