America’s greatest open-wheel racing competition is back at full throttle.
The IndyCar Series, billed as The Greatest Spectacle in Racing, is considered one of the three most prestigious motorsports events in the world and the “500” is the world’s largest single-day spectator sporting event. It covers 500 miles, 200 laps on the famous 2.5-mile oval. It currently is the marquee race on the schedule for the IZOD IndyCar Series, the premier open-wheel racing series in North America.
Thirty-three drivers, including three women, filed and there is outstanding depth and quality in this year’s field. Three past winners and four IZOD IndyCar Series champions are among the drivers named for the 2013 Indianapolis 500, scheduled for Sunday, May 26 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Eighteen of the 33 drivers have won at least one race in either IZOD IndyCar Series or Champ Car World Series/CART competition.
In 2009, IZOD became the official merchandise provider for the IndyCar Series. When league officials sought to align with a company that would expand the viewership of the event, IZOD was the perfect match. IZOD became the official title sponsor of IndyCar in 2010, marking the series’ first entitlement in almost a decade.
