This is the 100th year of open wheel racing in the United States. Although the IndyCar Series is second fiddle to NASCAR in terms of motor racing in America, it is a niche sport with some diehard fans. They will be happy to have events with fans in the stands again, especially the famous Indianapolis 500.

IndyCar Series History

The IndyCar Series is the fifth open wheel racing circuit to be founded in the United States. The AAA Contest Board was the original governing body of the sport in America, and they were replaced by the USAC in 1956. CART split off and formed their own circuit in 1979, and that became Champ Car in 2004. When the IndyCar Series acquired Champ Car in 2008, that ended nearly three decades of in-fighting in the sport.

Most IndyCar Series races are designated as road courses. Some of these road courses are literally on the roads of cities, while others are on racetracks. There will be two races in back-to-back days on a superspeedway (Texas Motor Speedway), but the only other races on oval race courses will be the 105th Indianapolis 500 and the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 in Illinois.

Scott Dixon is the most successful driver in the short history of the IndyCar Series. He has won six titles between 2003 and 2020, surpassing Dario Franchitti as the most accomplished driver on the circuit. Franchitti won four titles in a span of five years, but his career was cut short in 2013 when a serious crash at the Grand Prix of Houston led to his immediate retirement from the sport.

The only other drivers with multiple championships are Sam Hornish Jr. and Josef Newgarden. Hornish was one of the best drivers in this series in the 2000s, while Newgarden is a relative newcomer to the scene. He won’t turn 30 until the middle of 2021, so he has plenty of time to run down some of the other elite competitors.
