The NTT IndyCar Series’ 2020 season will begin its stretch run with a doubleheader weekend schedule at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
The Saturday-Sunday race weekend doubleheader will be the beginning of five consecutive races on road and street courses to close the season.
After Mid-Ohio, the circuit will race Oct. 2-3 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course and then close the season Oct. 25 on the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida.

Mid-Ohio will be open to a limited crowd because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Points leader Scott Dixon won IndyCar’s race last year at Mid-Ohio, leading 38 of the final 45 laps and fending off a strong charge by Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Felix Rosenqvist to win by 0.093 seconds.
IndyCar will be on track only Saturday and Sunday, but its USF2000 and Indy Pro 2000 ladder series will be on track starting Friday and also racing multiple times during the weekend.
