The famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval could make a return in 2024
NASCAR made their Indianapolis Motor Speedway debut in 1996. For over two decades, the sanction raced on the famed 2.5-mile oval.
Three years ago, NASCAR switched gears. They made the move to the Indianapolis Road Course and scheduled a double-header race weekend with the Indycar Series.
Last Sunday’s race on the Indianapolis Road Course was seen by a tv audience of 2.838 million. That’s down from last year’s numbers of 3.373 million.
The series steered away from the oval because the racing wasn’t any good. However, there’s a new car in town and NASCAR is looking to give Next Gen a try on the 2.5-mile track.
