Indycar 2021 Schedule- One New Venue, One Changed Event

The NTT Indycar Series released its 2021 schedule this morning. Outside of the new event in Nashville, there is not a lot to be excited about. Texas is now a double header the first weekend in May. Iowa is gone. There is a month gap between the first and second races. Forty percent of the schedule takes place at three venues- Texas, Detroit, and IMS.

The schedule:

On the positive side, I am glad there is a schedule for next year. I will chalk up some of this to the pandemic and the state of the economy. The first half of the schedule could still be subject to change because of COVID, with a limited fans allowed at events. I look forward to an improved situation developing during 2021, and hope for an improved schedule in 2022.
