PIR, Indy, Texas, Iowa, Pocono and Gateway are on the current schedule. Looks like Texas is the only night race. Agreed with DRT as Iowa Corn 300 needs to be at night.

I don't think we'll see Michigan or Fontana anytime soon and I know we've done this several times, but what are the other ovals possible:

Richmond is my #1
New Hampshire
Pikes Peak
Milwaukee

Maybes:
Homesstead
Kentucky
Kansas
Chicago

Nos for me:
Vegas, Atlanta, Charlotte

I think 2 additional races later in the year would work, not to take any road courses out. And I really feel the series finale at a speedway is the way to go.

I disagree with adding more night races. At least, if there are any new night races, they should be on the east coast where the majority of the viewership seems to be.

So from a TV viewing standpoint, I get this. Also keep in mind more people are apt to watch programming in the summer in the evenings. Richmond at night is a no brainer for the series, imho. Need a sponsor.

Dusk or early evening better, in your opinion? Racing from light to dark adds some intrigue.

Personally I like night races to start during the sunset. Gateway last year was little bit dull in my opinion when it was already dark before the green flag.

I agree that sunset races are the best.

A rather brief but interesting article, on what 5 IndyCar driver's champions think how the series should move forward.

"on some tracks they need a no-reply push-to-pass system so the car in front can't respond"


That can be solved with a 3-second delay between push to boost.

I like that there is a reply push to pass, otherwise it will just be like DRS in F1. Also it means the driver has to be more selective when using it.

I don't think DRS has resulted in all that much additional passing. Assume PtP could be programmed to prevent "car in front" from enabling PtP at any predetermined time interval after "car immediately behind" enabled PtP. Would surely result in more passing.

Driver in front would have to be very selective about using PtP, as he would only be guessing about when the guy behind is going to utilize it.

DRS has definitely helped, just watch any GP, except Monaco and more often than not, a race would be far more processional than it already is, without DRS.

There's certainly been less overtaking, at least on speedways, this year. I've missed a couple of the road course rounds, so I can't really speak to that...
