Understanding the IndyCar Schedule

IndyCar racing calendar is incredibly similar to F1 format in style and the cars they drive. However, the IndyCar schedule starts a bit earlier, usually around the end of February and runs through early to mid-September.

Overview of the 2024 IndyCar Series Calendar:

The 2024 IndyCar Series marks the 113th official championship season and the 29th season under IndyCar Series sanction. This season consists of 17 races, stretching from March 10th to September 15th, with each race carrying its unique allure and challenges.

Key Events and Highlights:

The spotlight event of the season, for example, was the historic 108th running of the Indianapolis 500, a race that has cemented its place in motorsport lore. The victor of this grand spectacle was Josef Newgarden, adding his name to the list of illustrious winners.

Fueling Sustainability:

In line with a growing emphasis on sustainability, Shell USA stepped in as an official fuel partner and supplier, introducing a 100% renewable fuel for the series.

This move reflects the commitment of IndyCar to contribute positively to environmental conservation while maintaining high-performance standards.

Race Weekend Dynamics:

Each race weekend in the IndyCar Series brings its unique flavor. One such example is the Gallagher Grand Prix held at the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.

The series also embarked on a double-header event with NASCAR, amplifying the excitement and rivalry between the two motorsport giants.

However, unlike F1, which typically runs about every week, IndyCar is much more spaced out.

Since they start so early in the year, races are typically held in warm-weather states. For example, the first race of the season was the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in St. Petersburg Florida, followed by races in Texas and Long Beach.

Main Events for This Season

The biggest event on the IndyCar schedule by far is the Indy 500. Even people who don’t watch another IndyCar race all year have a great chance at at least tuning in for a brief period, as the Indy 500 is often synonymous with Memorial Day in the United States at the end of May.

Another big IndyCar race on the schedule is the XPEL 375 at Texas Motor Speedway, though this motorsports race has had many different names and sponsors over the years. It’s an oval circuit, which brings high speeds and close finishes. Texas Motor Speedway has some of the closest finishes in the history of the IndyCar Series.

The Grand Prix of Long Beach is a much-anticipated race on the schedule as well. The city circuit is the longest-running course of the same style. The course is just short of two miles and consists of 11 turns and draws some of the largest crowds on the schedule.

IndyCar Betting Tips With Calendar

Weather is crucial when looking to bet on the IndyCar. While they won’t run in rain, hotter and more humid temperatures can impact the cars, the same as cooler temperatures can. 

Depending on the location, some of the above factors will come in. For example, teams and drivers will have the humidity be more of a factor in St. Petersburg than in Long Beach, which can affect the racing surface and tire wear. 

When looking at the IndyCar odds, it’s all about the value. It may not make sense to just take the favorite.

Say Scott Dixon was the favorite out of the entire field at +700 odds. While he may be the favorite in that situation, the implied probability of winning at +700 odds is still only 12.5%.

IndyCar Schedule FAQs

How many rounds of qualifying are there in an IndyCar race weekend?

The number of qualifying rounds varies based on the type of track. For road and street courses, there are typically three rounds, while oval courses may have a unique format.

How are starting positions determined in the Fast Six?

In the Fast Six, the starting positions are determined by the drivers’ fastest lap times. The driver with the fastest time starts from pole position.

Can a driver compete in the race if they do not qualify for the Fast Six?

Yes, a driver can still compete in the race even if they do not qualify for the Fast Six. Their starting position will be determined based on their performance in the previous qualifying rounds.
