IndyCar Standings

The IndyCar standings play an integral role during the sport’s season. While the winner of an IndyCar race takes home $30,000 on average, it’s the points from winning the race the drivers are really after.

Throughout the season, the IndyCar driver standings are likely to change. Whether it’s a close competition at the top to decide who will take the championship at the end of the season, or jockeying for position in the middle of the standings, you can almost count on movement.
