Next week, Indycar and NASCAR will meet for a unique crossover racing weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The weekend will feature an Indycar race and an Xfinity race on Saturday and a Cup race on Sunday.
This 4th of July weekend, Indycar and NASCAR will race at the same venue on the same day at IMS for the first time.
First, IndyCar and Xfinity series will have a practice session on Friday. After that, the IndyCar’s GMR Grand Prix and Xfinity series will race on the road course of IMS. And finally, NASCAR Cup Series Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400 or Brickyard 400 will race in the oval on Sunday to conclude the weekend.
Fox NASCAR’s Bob Pockross reveals a few details of the weekend plan while replying to a fan tweet. He writes, “IndyCar and Xfinity races on the road course Saturday. Originally, Cup would then practice after Xfinity race Saturday but there is no Cup practice (Xfinity does practice Friday) so plenty of time to get oval ready for Cup cars to race Sunday.”

He was replying to a fan tweet. A twitter page by the name of ‘Chase Elliott Nation’ asked, “@bobpockrass is @NASCAR_Xfinity still planning on running the road course @IMS? Wasn’t sure if with less people on hand at the tracks If this got changed or not. Was wondering if having less people would make it too hard to change over from road course to the course cup runs”
