Following two street races and three contests on permanent road courses, the NTT IndyCar Series calendar flips to North American open-wheel racing’s crown jewel event, set to occur for the 103rd time.

Four days of practice will precede a whole weekend of qualifying and serve as the buildup for the world-renowned race — made more global this year with the return of two-time Formula One world champion Fernando Alonso and McLaren Racing.

Twelve days after first lapping the famed 2.5-mile superspeedway in Speedway, Indiana for the first practice, 33 teams and drivers will compete for Indianapolis 500 glory with one driver’s ascension to stardom as guaranteed as their eventual likeliness on the historic Borg-Warner Trophy.
