What’s In A Doubleheader?

In a year when the COVID-19 pandemic left a trail of broken dreams and broken lives, IndyCar and NASCAR had to dramatically revise schedules simply to have a season. Out of necessity, both sanctioning bodies used doubleheaders to help make up races that were lost to the pandemic. In order to have a 14-race season, the NTT IndyCar Series had to turn all but three of its weekends into doubleheaders. “It’s very difficult to stand up a new race in a new place on an unscheduled weekend. It’s pretty efficient for all of us, IndyCar, NBC, and of course the teams. I think they’re in pretty good shape,” Miles added. I don’t know if you’d want two races on a street race weekend, for example.”. Accordingly, I think we believe being in more markets where the races work is important to us.
