Last Updated: 54 days ago
Eighteen races over 15 event weekends highlight the 2014 IndyCar Series schedule announced Thursday.
Officials said the highlights consist of the new Indianapolis road course race and three doubleheaders.
"The 2014 schedule reflects a more condensed North American calendar to increase the consistency with our race weekends," said Mark Miles, CEO, Hulman & Co., the parent of IndyCar. "We'll be building momentum throughout the season toward crowning our champion on Labor Day weekend."
Miles said the street course race in Sau Paulo, Brazil may return in 2014, but is not part of the schedule now.
"We're excited about the new month of May at IMS and our first Grand Prix of Indianapolis," Miles said. "Many people want to see more of our racing, and we're putting some of it on our most iconic stage and building toward the 500. We want to use the strength of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the 500 to leverage value for the IndyCar Series and vice versa."
