IndyCar officials announced on Wednesday that INDY NXT presented by Firestone had been added to the Brickyard weekend schedule in August.
Speaking about the news, Levi Jones, Director of INDY NXT presented by Firestone said:
To feature INDY NXT by Firestone during this elite NASCAR-INDYCAR weekend is a tremendous opportunity. “This season, 19 INDY NXT entries will compete for the 2023 championship – the most since 2009. It is a growing series matching the growing INDYCAR paddock and a phenomenal moment to showcase the next generation of stars on a huge stage.
The 2023 INDY NXT presented by Firestone season gets underway next weekend with the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg presented by RP Funding.
