IndyCar Postpones Ohio Event, Adds Second Madison Race

The NTT IndyCar Series continues their perpetual shuffle of their 2020 season and ensuing changes resulted in the postponement of the next previously scheduled road event in Ohio this upcoming weekend and added a race for local open-wheeled fans later this month.

On Saturday, the open-wheeled series, alongside the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, postponed the Honda Indy 200 Mid-Ohio pair of races that were scheduled for this Saturday and Sunday in Lexington.

The postponement of the event, which could be rescheduled for either September or October, was made after discussion by the series, the facility and local health officials.

Originally pegged as a 17-race season at the start of the calendar year, the NTT IndyCar series has only held six races in a docket that has been narrowed to its current 12-race schedule that was affected by the pandemic.

With the Ohio postponement, the next scheduled race in the series is the Indianapolis 500 Presented by Gainbridge on Sunday, August 23. The governing body re-adjusted the Memorial Day weekend benchmark earlier this year.

As a result of the push, the Bommarito Automotive 500 at World Wide Technology Raceway in Madison, Illinois was moved ahead of their scheduled date and now takes place on Sunday, August 30 at 2 p.m.

The series also added a second race at the 1.25-mile oval for Saturday, August 29.
