FOX Sports has confirmed it’s the brand new home for IndyCar with its 2025 schedule released

As a part of the unprecedented increase in visibility of the IndyCar Series, all races within the 2025 season might be broadcast on FOX and may also be available on the FOX Sports app, and FOX Deportes will broadcast exclusive television coverage in Spanish.

In addition to being the exclusive home of North America's premier open-wheel championship, the deal includes extensive, multi-platform coverage of the 109th Indianapolis 500 on the FOX Sports family of networks.

FOX may also broadcast two days of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” qualifying on Saturday and Sunday, bringing the full variety of broadcast windows to 19, a record for the IndyCar Series.

“This means unparalleled exposure and unparalleled opportunities to grow the most competitive and entertaining motor sport in the world,” said Mark Miles, IndyCar CEO.

“FOX Sports is a fully committed partner, ready to provide engaging and technically innovative coverage to millions of fans across the country while thoroughly promoting IndyCar across all of its platforms.”

The five-hour window on FOX might be part of intensive Indy 500 race day coverage.

“Adding the iconic Indianapolis 500 and bringing the entire NTT IndyCar Series to the FOX Sports lineup is a perfect fit for our model of partnering with major sporting events and best-in-class brands,” said FOX Sports CEO and Executive Producer Eric Shanks.

“We are honored to be the new host of the broadcast of 'The Greatest Show in Racing,' an incredibly special event for everyone on FOX Sports.”

All IndyCar series practice and qualifying sessions might be broadcast on FS1 and FS2. The historic deal also includes most Indy NXT races broadcast on FS1, with FS2 providing additional coverage of additional races.

While the printed schedule might be announced at a later date, a 2025 schedule has also been revealed.

IndyCar Series racing will once more kick off the 2025 season with the Saint Petersburg Grand Prix on Sunday, March 2. It will conclude on Labor Day weekend with the Music City Grand Prix on Sunday, August 31.

A return trip to The Thermal Club is scheduled for March 23, with significant changes including a race in St. Louis on the track formerly generally known as Gateway moved to June 15.
