Let’s not forget about the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. The rescheduled race will determine the 2020 NTT INDYCAR Series Championship.

The Grand Prix of St. Petersburg has the drivers racing through the streets of St. Pete under beautiful palm trees along the shores of Tampa Bay. This is a race that the drivers compare to the Formula One race in Monaco.
