Rumor: To cut costs, more IndyCar weekends to be reduced to 2-days

Rumor has it that with sponsor dollars reduced due to low TV ratings and low attendance as a result of Covid-19, the majority of 2021  IndyCar weekends will be reduced to 2-day affairs except for the Indy 500, St. Petersburg, Nashville and Long Beach.

This will save teams on travel costs, tires and engine costs, and parts replacement.

Roger Penske lost a lot of money in 2020 on the IndyCar series due to Covid – financing the series so it would not collapse. Word is he is not prepared to lose as much money this year.
