IndyCar Mobile to offer access to drivers' meetings
INDYCAR fans will go behind-closed-doors in September, as the IZOD IndyCar Series pre-race drivers' meetings at Baltimore and Auto Club Speedway will be streamed for the first time, exclusively through INDYCAR Mobile.
While these meetings are traditionally open only to competitors, INDYCAR Mobile will allow fans to view Race Director Beaux Barfield relaying instructions for the races on the temporary street course in Baltimore on Sept. 2 and the 2-mile Auto Club Speedway oval on Sept. 15. Both are significant as the series' heated championship battle takes center stage, and contenders will express opinions and pose questions during the drivers' meetings.
For the race in Baltimore, fans will be able to view the drivers' meeting at 5 p.m. (ET) on Sept. 1. The Fontana race will showcase the drivers' meeting at 7:45p.m. (ET) on Sept. 15.
