Welcome to
VERIZON / INDYCAR 2015



The purpose of this site is to promote and enhance the fan experience at the INDYCAR Series venues by having a one stop site to access information to the tracks, find hotels, restaurants, tickets and credentials and airport preference. We are going to share our 'INDYCAR road warrior' merit badges and experiences! The site will also provide a blog in which to share ideas, thoughts and tips on the events, travel to/from and just general bench racing by serious ICS fans.
