WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. – The Verizon IndyCar Series second-to-last race of the season is its second trip back to historic and picturesque Watkins Glen International for today’s INDYCAR Grand Prix at The Glen.
You can watch the 60-lap, 202.2-mile race from Watkins Glen live on NBCSN (stream link here) from 1 p.m. ET and local time.
Leigh Diffey will call Sunday’s race from Watkins Glen, following a call from NBC Sports Group broadcast headquarters in Stamford, Ct. of the morning’s F1 race from Monza, along with analysts Townsend Bell and Paul Tracy.
Kevin Lee will be in the pits with Jon Beekhuis, Katie Hargitt and Robin Miller. If weather intervenes and affects travel plans, Lee would move to the booth with Anders Krohn filling in on pit lane.
IndyCar race coverage will run from 1 p.m. through 4 p.m. ET.
After qualifying, where Alexander Rossi secured his first pole position, here’s some of the questions to consider in Watkins Glen:
- How might rain interfere with the race?
- Can Josef Newgarden hold onto his 31-point lead or can Scott Dixon, or others within that 43-point gap down to fourth-placed Simon Pagenaud, close?
- Might a surprise result be in the cards with the grid as jumbled as it is?
*The Firestone tire designation is only if it’s a dry race.
