Indianapolis To Test Nationwide Drivers

nationwide series

For drivers, Saturday’s first-ever NASCAR Nationwide Series race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway represents a chance to run on perhaps the most famous track in racing.

It is also one of the tougher tests they will face all season.

The historic 2.5-mile oval has hosted NASCAR’s top-level series, now known as Sprint Cup, since 1994 but didn’t add the second-tier Nationwide Series until this year. For many drivers in the field, it will be their first time racing at Indy — and they are in for a challenge.
