The Road to Indy
IndyCar features the Road to Indy ladder system, which provides a defined path for up-and-coming open-wheel racers to reach the top. Several IndyCar teams run teams in the lower series as well. Many of these series race on the same weekend as IndyCar as support races.

- IndyCar Minor Leagues, many of the current IndyCar drivers are Indy Lights graduates.




- Bottom rung of the ladder, usually first step after pro-karting.

USAC Silver Crown / Midgets - While not officially part of the Road to Indy Ladder, many current and former open wheel drivers got their start in sprint cars.

That four wide video is absolutely absurd. Like a scene from a movie to come from fourth to win in the last turn.

Hell yeah it is. Here is where I have to make an obligatory brag post about literally standing right behind the finish line camera on the third floor of the pagoda.

The crowd energy was incredible, as soon as they went three wide the place erupted, and with the finish it was the loudest Iíve heard the place on carb day.
