IndyCar Testing Schedule

The first race on the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series schedule takes place on the streets of St. Petersburg, on March 12.

Before that though, teams and drivers will begin preparations for the 17-round battle for the championship, including the 101st Running of the Indianapolis 500 on May 28. December has just begun, but Silly Season is mostly wrapped up, with many driver and team changes, as well as Chip Ganassi’s organization switching from Chevrolet back to Honda power.
