IndyCar has it all. Road courses, street courses, and ovals. While NASCAR runs mostly ovals and F1 is all road courses and street course, IndyCar combines the both and gives fans great track diversity. The 2018 schedule will contain of six ovals, four street circuits, and six road courses. To think at one-point IndyCar was a strictly oval series, its developed into plenty more. ABC and NBC will be broadcasting all the races with ABC taking the Streets of St. Petersburg, the Indianapolis GP, the Indianapolis 500, and both days of The Raceway at Belle Isle Park (Detroit GP). NBC will be taking the rest of the season including the season final at Sonoma Raceway.

ABC and NBC will be utilizing new camera work and show views that we’ve never seen before. They will continue to use the fan favorite helmet view, which cameras are mounted on drivers helmets to provide a more accurate view of what its like to wheel an IndyCar. Cameras will also be mounted on the nose, sidepod, and rear attenuator.

Two races on NBC will have earlier start times this year. The Iowa Corn 300 at Iowa Speedway will air at 2pm ET and the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 at Gateway Motorsports Park will air at 8pm ET.

NBC will also include Miller Light Carb Day activities on May 25th. This includes final practice for the Indianapolis 500 and the Indy Lights Freedom 100.

NBC will also carry qualifying for all other races through the season. It should be another exciting season for IndyCar so make sure to be tuned in all season, so you don’t miss any of the action.
