In a continuing effort to deliver the most effective and entertaining on-track action for fans, the Verizon IndyCar Series has modified the race weekend schedule at some events for the 2017 season.
INDYCAR, the sanctioning body for the Verizon IndyCar Series and Mazda Road to Indy presented by Cooper Tires developmental ladder, announced the modifications today, as well as updates included in the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series Official Rule Book.
Among the race-weekend schedule modifications are:
• Phoenix and Gateway qualifications: Qualifying at two oval tracks – Phoenix Raceway and Gateway Motorsports Park – will be held on the same day as those Saturday night races. The first day of those two-day event weekends will focus on a pair of practice sessions, the latter falling within the same evening time slot as the race.
