NBC Sports launches @IndyCaronNBCSN Twitter account


Ahead of the first Verizon IndyCar Series race on NBCSN this year, this Sunday’s Indy Grand Prix of Louisiana (2:30 p.m. ET), NBC Sports has launched a single IndyCar-focused Twitter account, @IndyCarOnNBCSN.

The account was activated just prior to the season-opening Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg for the weekend of March 27-29.

The account provides up-to-the-minute IndyCar news and highlights, including video and articles from MotorSportsTalk on NBCSports.com.

NBCSN will present coverage of 12 races during the upcoming 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series season, beginning with series’ inaugural race at NOLA Motorsports Park in New Orleans, La., on Sunday (the Texas and Mid-Ohio races will be on CNBC).

We’ll be posting a mix of live tweets and on-the-ground content from events throughout the year. A few examples from St. Petersburg are below:
