IndyCar Detroit start times: The NTT IndyCar Series bids farewell to Belle Isle Raceway, which has hosted races for the past 30 years, this weekend.
Next year, IndyCar will move to downtown D-Town across the Detroit River on a new street course that will provide spectating opportunities for fans and probably fewer encounters with the stray wildlife on Belle Isle.
Michael Andretti won pole position for the inaugural Belle Isle race, which Bobby Rahal won on June 7, 1992.
Last year, Indy 500 winner Marcus Ericsson scored his first career win in Detroit a day before Pato O’Ward’s win at the last IndyCar doubles weekend at Belle Isle.
Sunday also marks the final post-race dip in the James Scott Memorial Fountain, a winning tradition that began with Ryan Hunter-Reay in 2018.
Here are the details and IndyCar start times for the Detroit Grand Prix at Belle Isle Raceway (all times are ET):
