IndyCar at Iowa schedule for Saturday: How to watch, start times, live streaming info

James Hinchcliffe joins Kelli Stavast to recap his broadcasting experience at Road America, share what stood out to him after wins by Scott Dixon and Felix Rosenqvist, and preview how things stack up for Iowa.

The NTT IndyCar Series will run it back Saturday night at Iowa Speedway after the opener of its race weekend doubleheader featured a wild crash, a long caution that jumbled strategies and an intense finish. The IndyCar at Iowa schedule and more can be found below.

It resulted in Simon Pagenaud earning his first victory this year for Team Penske, which ended Chip Ganassi Racing’s four-race winning streak to open the 2020 season.

Penske will have an excellent shot to win again tonight with Josef Newgarden and Will Power starting on the front row of the second race on the 0.894-mile speedway, where qualifying for both races was conducted Friday.
