IndyCar Cancels All Races Through April

The NTT IndyCar Series will not race until May at the earliest, INDYCAR announced Friday, March 13.

The news follows initial indications that the series would race this weekend at St. Petersburg, albeit without spectators.

In addition to the cancellation of St. Petersburg, the series will also not race at Long Beach, Birmingham or Austin, barring any announcements of alternate dates.

Currently, the series will return with the Indianapolis Grand Prix on May 9.

The IndyCar schedule usually ends by mid-September, so they could (fairly) easily add these races to the end of the schedule, thus extending the season by a month. No big deal, as there was a time the IndyCar season ended in early November at the old Riverside Raceway in California for a couple of years way back when it was all controlled by U.S.A.C. I remember one year Mario won it (was it 1967?) by hopping into his car at the start, but his car died early, so he hopped into another car and finished with the points lead. I know people are going to say, “But it’s football season! Nobody will watch!” Well, some people will, like me.
