INDYCAR Harvest GP Becomes Doubleheader Oct. 2-3 at IMS

The INDYCAR Harvest GP has become a doubleheader at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, with races Friday, Oct. 2 and Saturday, Oct. 3, as part of an updated 2020 race calendar released July 27 by the NTT INDYCAR SERIES.

NTT INDYCAR SERIES drivers will compete on the 14-turn, 2.439-mile road course in two points-paying events, adding the Friday race to the previously scheduled Saturday race. Ticket information, start times and television details will be announced soon.

The doubleheader at the INDYCAR Harvest GP will mark the third and fourth NTT INDYCAR SERIES races this season at IMS, joining the GMR Grand Prix on Saturday, July 4 on the road course and the 104th Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on Sunday, Aug. 23 on the oval.

Two other events already scheduled on the series calendar will now become doubleheader weekends, including INDYCAR’s upcoming race weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Prior to the originally scheduled Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio on Sunday, Aug. 9, the stars of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES will square off in another championship-points paying event Saturday, Aug. 8.

In addition, the race weekend at World Wide Technology Raceway will feature races Saturday, Aug. 29 and Sunday, Aug. 30.

“Our race fans have loved the exciting doubleheader action of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES this year at Road America and Iowa Speedway,” Penske Entertainment Corp. President & CEO Mark Miles said. “We look forward to giving them even more world-class entertainment this season at three of the most exciting racetracks on the NTT INDYCAR SERIES calendar.”

INDYCAR’s race at Portland International Raceway and double-header weekend at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca have been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The cancellation of both event weekends was a mutual decision between the series and promoters following close consultation and monitoring of the local situation. The series looks forward to returning to both venues in 2021.

The NTT INDYCAR SERIES remains on track to run 14 races in the 2020 season. The full, updated schedule can be found at INDYCAR.com/Schedule.
