President and CEO of the Penske Entertainment Corporation Mark Miles says the NTT IndyCar Series are taking it one race at a time for the 2020 season.

The new season is set to start on Saturday June 6 after the series announced on Thursday with a 200 lap Genesys 300 at Texas Motor Speedway. Speaking to Curt Cavin and Kevin Lee of Trackside Online, Miles said the sport are taking it one race at a time due to COVID 19.

Miles has said that the series may decide to host the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge in October depending on how things go later in Summer in relation to COVID 19.

Miles said he expects that unless there are negative results over the next two to four weeks then fans will be able to attend the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis while being to implement social distancing.

Miles hinted that if the August 23 date for the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge can’t go ahead they could run it as a double header with the Harvest Grand Prix of Indianapolis.

Miles also said that he is uncertain whether or not the series will be heading to Toronto due to the COVID 19 restrictions north of the border.

Miles went on to say that the series hope to have 15 races this season.
