The 2020 NTT IndyCar Series season finally began in June after a pause of nearly three months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Below is the latest revision of the IndyCar Series 2020 schedule with dates, times and venues subject to change.

The series currently is off until the Indianapolis 500 on Aug. 23 (1 p.m. ET, NBC) with the postponement of the Aug. 8-9 race weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course to September or October.

Just five days earlier, Mid-Ohio had been announced as one of three tracks to expand to doubleheader race weekends after the cancellation of the Portland and Laguna Seca events.

Chip Ganassi Racing won the first four races of the 2020 season with drivers Scott Dixon and Felix Rosenqvist.

Dixon opened the season with consecutive wins at Texas, Indianapolis (road course), and Race #1 at Road America last Saturday. Rosenqvist won Race #2 at Road America the following day, earning his first IndyCar victory.

Team Penske swept the next two races July 18-19 at Iowa Speedway with victories by Simon Pagenaud and Josef Newgarden.
