The NTT IndyCar Series kicks off its 2023 race season on March 5 on Florida’s west coast with a street course race in St. Petersburg, Florida. Six months later, the champion will be crowned at the season finale in Monterey, California on Sept. 10.
IndyCar will stage 17 races this season, including a doubleheader at Iowa Speedway on July 22-23. The biggest highlight of the season, as always, will come on Memorial Day weekend with the 107th running of the Indianapolis 500 on May 28. The lineup will be set the weekend before with two days of qualifying.
In all, drivers will race on five street courses, four ovals and six permanent road courses.
Reigning champion Will Power will be back trying to win a third title, while Penske teammate Josef Newgarden also chases a third. Six-time champion Scott Dixon also returns, seeking to tie A.J. Foyt’s record for most championships in North American open-wheel racing history.
