After a good ratings year it looks like the Indycar Series has kept its times for the most part. The earliest start time for the Verizon Indycar Series is at Noon for the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 which is almost always at noon. The Latest time is the Night race at Phoenix which starts at 8:35PM ET. An interesting start time for me is the Sonoma Race. The race will start at 7:37 PM ET which I think is a really late start time. However it is on the West Coast. Hopefully it will not be delayed. It is also important to note that the the Verizon Indycar Series is trying to work around the Nascar schedule. Hopefully that will help increase viewers.

With the Verizon Indycar Series adding new races, great start times and the best drivers in the world, make sure you make your calendars and tune in for the races.
