The Verizon IndyCar Series will see its first official sessions of the 2018 season this weekend at ISM Raceway in Phoenix as the series ventures to the one-mile bullring for a a test open to all teams to kick off the 2018 season. Last year, all four sessions featured live streaming video, but this year will see an enhanced coverage package.

In addition to an extra camera that will capture action on pit lane - last year saw one fixed camera positioned above Turn 1 that scanned around the track - the Advance Auto Parts INDYCAR Radio Network will also provide commentary the entire weekend, with Mark Jaynes, Dave Furst, Jake Query, and IndyCar on NBCSN pit reporter Katie Hargitt calling the action.

The two-day test will be on February 9 and 10, with two sessions each day. The first sessions on Friday and Saturday are scheduled for 3:00 p.m. EST, with the second sessions slated for 8:00 p.m. EST. Each of the four sessions will last three hours in length.
