For 15 years, Homestead-Miami Speedway hosted some of the most thrilling races on the IndyCar calendar, counting such legendary drivers as Michael Andretti, Scott Dixon, and the late Dan Wheldon among its multi-time winners. Tonight, as part of the IndyCar iRacing Challenge, the cars and stars of the NTT IndyCar Series will make their virtual return to the 1.5-mile oval for the second race of the three-race tour.
Last week’s visit to Circuit Gilles Villeneuve saw Alex Palou kick off his Chip Ganassi Racing tenure on the right foot, as the Spanish driver dominated the first portion of the race, muscled past Team Penske’s Scott McLaughlin to regain the lead, and took the checkered flag. Palou will look to make it two for two at Homestead, as he’ll join names like McLaughlin, Will Power, Ed Jones, Marcus Ericsson, Sage Karam, and Takuma Sato in returning from last week. The entry list only gets bigger for Homestead, though, as top drivers like Simon Pagenaud, Felix Rosenqvist, Tony Kanaan, Conor Daly, and Ed Carpenter are among those racing today that didn’t have a chance to compete in Montreal.
