Indy 500 Pit Stop Challenge

It's time for the top pit crews in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES to take center stage on Miller Lite Carb Day! During this tournament-style pit stop competition, two cars will line up side by side on pit lane. When the light turns green, the cars will race into a pit box, where their crew is waiting to simulate a full-service pit stop in front of the roaring Friday crowd. Once complete, the drivers will exit the pit box and race to the finish line. The team that performs the quickest service advances to the next round, pending any penalties. The final round is a best-of-three competition between two teams, with the winners taking home bragging rights and a cash prize.
