The original Aug. 8-9 race weekend was postponed because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic restrictions in Ohio that precluded fans in attendance.
It’s still unclear what kind of crowd will be present. In a release Saturday, IndyCar said race promoters will contact customers with guidance for attendance.
The Sept. 12 race at Mid-Ohio will be at 4:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN, and the Sept. 13 race at Mid-Ohio will be at 1 p.m. ET on NBC.
