IndyCar Series Tickets
IndyCar is the premier series for open-wheel auto racing in North America. At its founding in 1994 as the Indy Racing League, IndyCar inherited a rich tradition of open-wheel racing that reaches back to the invention of the automobile. Its champions have included icons of American racing with names like Foyt, Unser, Andretti and Castroneves. Its cars run ear-splitting 12,000 rpm engines that turn out 700 horsepower at the top end. They race at lightning-fast speeds on the most challenging array of racecourses in the world. Eight IndyCar races have ended with less than one-tenth of a second between their first- and third-place finishers. The fastest race in series history featured an average speed of 207.151 mph. From the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida to the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the short track in Richmond, Virginia, IndyCar's international lineup of drivers captivate race fans week in and week out.
