AVONDALE, La. – The second round of the Verizon IndyCar Series’ season, the Indy Grand Prix of Louisiana, will be LIVE on NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra from 2:30 p.m. ET, 1:30 p.m. CT and local time, this afternoon. The Live Extra stream link is linked here.
Qualifying started in wet conditions, which intensified later in the session and then forced its cancellation.
The grid will be set by entrant points, with St. Petersburg winner Juan Pablo Montoya on the pole position ahead of Team Penske teammate Will Power.
The grid was somewhat jumbled compared to practice times and potential Q1 dropouts.
Today’s inaugural race at NOLA Motorsports Park is scheduled for 75 laps around the 2.74-mile, 13-turn road course. Rain is almost certainly going to fall, but to what degree is uncertain. Montoya discussed the rain at NOLA on Saturday.
For today’s race, Brian Till, Townsend Bell and Paul Tracy will be in the NBCSN booth, with Marty Snider, Kelli Stavast, Kevin Lee and Robin Miller patrolling pit road.
Again, that’s 2:30 p.m ET/1:30 p.m. CT for the coverage on NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra.
