The 2016 schedule also begins earlier and ends later, mid-September in Sonoma, CA again. It features a nearly perfect balance of fifteen venues (Detroit being the only Double-Header this year) with five ovals, five street circuits, and five natural terrain road courses.
Gabby Chaves on the 2016 Schedule:
"I'm excited about the 2016 Verizon Indycar Series schedule with some new venues and better spacing in between races. I like the fact that we will have a new oval, road course, and street circuit to change things up a little, which will be fun and challenging. I'm really looking forward on having my first go at Road America in an Indycar, from what I hear from various drivers that tested there, it's almost like a video game with incredible grip, stopping power and high speed."
