Brickyard weekend 2021
IMS has made changes to its NASCAR weekend format, adding a new NTT INDYCAR SERIES race to the program that includes the Cup and Xfinity Series. The event will be Aug. 13-15. And, in a twist, the Cup cars will join the other two divisions in racing on the 14-turn, 2.439-mile road course. NBC will carry all three races. The Brickyard 400 was first held on the oval track in 1994.
