INDYCAR teams will officially ring in the 2018 race season in central Iowa this week. At least 13 drivers representing six INDYCAR organizations will participate in the June 27 test. And fans can watch for free.
RV Hill, perched high above the backstretch, will be open and free to those fans wishing to watch from noon to 5:00 p.m. CDT on Wednesday.
The drivers will be on hand to gather data in preparation for the Verizon IndyCar Series Iowa Corn 300 on July 8. Iowa Corn is entering its 12th year of sponsorship and is the second longest entitlement sponsorship in INDYCAR racing.
The test session also marks the on-track debut of the fourth-generation Verizon IndyCar Series car (Dallara IR-12) at Iowa Speedway which was designed to incorporate improved safety standards while reducing costs to teams.
The following teams are scheduled to test:
- Team Penske
- Ed Carpenter Racing
- Andretti Autosport
- Harding Racing
- A.J. Foyt Racing
- Schmidt Peterson Motorsports
Testing times, track schedule and drivers are subject to change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
9:00 a.m. – Test Begins
5:00 p.m. – Test Ends
