March 11, 2018 / 12:00 p.m. EST / ABC

The 1.8-mile, 14-turn circuit incorporates streets of downtown St. Petersburg and a section of runway of Albert Whitted Airport. After the long frontstrecth, there’s a tight right-hander into Turn 1 and then a quick left-hand turn. Plenty of drivers have gotten into trouble in these two turns over the years. There are two other long straights with braking zones that afford opportunities to overtake.

April 7, 2018 / 9:00 p.m. EST / NBCSN

Phoenix International Raceway, also known as PIR, is a one-mile, low-banked tri-oval race track located in Avondale, Arizona opened in 1964. PIR has an estimated grandstand seating capacity of around 67,000. Lights were installed around the track in 2004. One of the signature features of PIR is the “dogleg” at the exit of Turn 2, which leads into a sharper turning radius into Turns 3 and 4. A.J. Foyt won the track’s first oval race, a 100-mile USAC event at an average speed of 107.536 mph.

With four corners banked at 9 degrees, 12 minutes, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway drives more like a road course than an oval. But each of the corners is different, with weather influencing the car’s characteristics. The straightaways are 5/8ths of a mile long — time to catch your breath and dive into the next corner.

Streets of Toronto

July 15, 2018 / 3:00 p.m. EST / NBCSN

The 11-turn, 1.75-mile street circuit, which offers great views of downtown Toronto, is tight and has led to cars attempting to squeeze past each other in turns. Many times, only one makes it out unscathed. A long frontstretch leading into the Turn 1 Princes Gate, a hard right-hander, is a great place for overtaking.

Portland International Raceway

After a 10-year absence, the race will return to the Indy Car Series for the 2018 season. The closest road course finish in Indy car racing history was set at this race at Portland. In the 1986 race, Michael Andretti ran out of fuel on the final lap, which allowed his father Mario to catch up and nip him at the line by 0.070 seconds. At the time at which it occurred, it was the closest finish of any race in Indy car history.
