IndyCar weekend schedule for Road America Grand Prix doubleheader
Road America will play host to the REV Group Grand Prix doubleheader featuring a busy IndyCar weekend schedule at the Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, road course.
Saturday’s race will take place at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN, and Sunday’s race will begin at noon ET on NBC. Both also will be streamed on the NBC Sports app and NBCSports.com).
After winning the June 6 season opener at Texas Motor Speedway and last Saturday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course, Scott Dixon is trying to become the first driver to open a season with three victories since Sebastien Bourdais (who won the opening four Champ Car races in 2006).
Alexander Rossi, who is off to a tough start in 2020, is the defending winner at Road America.
These will be the third and fourth races of the season for the NTT IndyCar Series, which is in a stretch of five races in 15 days (with a Friday-Saturday weekend doubleheader July 17-18 at Iowa Speedway). In addition to IndyCar, the Indy Pro 2000 and USF2000 support series begin their seasons this weekend.
