IMS To Host IndyCar Road Race In May 2014

An IZOD IndyCar Series race will take place in May 2014 on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course, an event approved Thursday, Sept. 26 during a meeting of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, LLC board of directors.

The race will be contested on the opening weekend of Month of May activities at IMS leading into the 98th Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, May 25. It will be the first time the IndyCar Series has competed on the Speedway road course, which will undergo reconfiguration this fall and next spring to create more passing zones and fan-friendly vantage points.

“This event will bring even more energy and action to the Month of May for fans and create another showcase for the diversity and excitement of the Speedway and the IndyCar Series,” said Hulman & Company Chief Executive Officer Mark D. Miles. “The new road race will further enhance the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as the premier motorsports destination in the world and direct an even brighter spotlight on the Indianapolis 500.”

More details about the new race, reconfigured road course and other plans for the Month of May will be announced at a media event Tuesday, Oct. 1 at IMS.
