After a delay of almost four months amid the coronavirus pandemic, the NTT IndyCar Series finally began its 2020 season in June. This weekend, IndyCar’s modified 2020 schedule resumes with the first of two Saturday-Sunday doubleheaders. Race 1 of the REV Group Grand Prix at Road America, though, will be shown on a different TV channel than Race 2 will on Sunday.
It was not originally intended to be the third race of the season, but Race 1 of the REV Group Grand Prix at Road America will run Saturday on its new date without fans in attendance. The start time for Saturday’s race at Road America is 5 p.m. ET, and it will broadcast live on NBCSN.
The REV Group Grand Prix at Road America became a doubleheader when it was moved from its original date of June 21 back to July 11-12, with both races being points events on the four-mile road course in Wisconsin. The are the third and fourth of a 14-race schedule that ends in late October.
