STAMFORD, Conn. – March 1, 2023 – NBC Sports presents the 2023 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season opener at the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg (Fla.) this Sunday live at 12 p.m. ET on NBC, Peacock, and Universo. Pre-race coverage leads into race coverage getting underway at 12:30 p.m. ET. The race marks the first of seven races airing on NBC to begin the season. Peacock, which offers the most live sports of any direct-to-consumer streaming service in the United States, is once again the one-stop-shop for INDYCAR fans this season, streaming all races as well as exclusive coverage of nearly all qualifying and practice sessions.

Reigning and two-time INDYCAR champion Will Power is part of a star-studded group of drivers in the series’ paddock that includes six-time champion Scott Dixon, two-time champion Josef Newgarden, four-time Indianapolis 500 champion Helio Castroneves, and reigning Indianapolis 500 champion Marcus Ericsson, among others. Scott McLaughlin looks to defend his first career INDYCAR victory at last season’s Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.

NBC Sports’ lead INDYCAR commentary team of Leigh Diffey (play-by-play), Townsend Bell (analyst) and James Hinchcliffe (analyst) will call the race. Hinchcliffe won the St. Petersburg race 10 years ago in 2013, which marked his first career INDYCAR victory. Marty Snider, Dave Burns, and Kevin Lee will provide reports from pit road.

Live coverage of qualifying, practice sessions and race-day warmups from St. Petersburg Friday-Sunday will stream exclusively on Peacock. The INDY NXT by Firestone season opening race will also be presented from St. Petersburg on Sunday at 9:50 a.m. ET on Peacock.

For a second consecutive season, Telemundo Deportes will provide Spanish-language coverage of three INDYCAR races in 2023, including this weekend’s season opener, the Indianapolis 500 and the season finale at Laguna Seca, on Universo and streaming on TelemundoDeportes.com and the Telemundo app. Host Frederik Oldenburg will anchor studio coverage with race announcer Sergio Rodriguez, analyst Jaime Macias, and reporter Veronica Rodriguez on the call for the three races.

Coverage airing on NBC will also stream live on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app.
