INDY NXT by Firestone to launch a new generation of stars

The pathway to North America’s premier open-wheel racing series has a fresh, more youthful and energetic final level: INDY NXT by Firestone. INDY NXT will feature a new generation of global racing talent, competing vigorously for podiums and the opportunity to join the elite ranks of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES.

The presenting sponsor and Official Tire of INDY NXT will be Firestone, also the Official Tire Supplier and longtime partner of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES. INDY NXT by Firestone will emphasize talent development, while extending racing’s reach and impact to a younger and emerging consumer audience.

The rebranded racing series, formerly known as Indy Lights, will stage 14 races in 2023, starting March 5 on the Streets of St. Petersburg and competing on a diverse set of ovals, road courses and street circuits.

About KiwiF1Fan

My dad loved sports, any and all sports. So my first memories of F1 were his mentions of the race results through the heady Schumacker Ferrari days. There wasn’t a lot of coverage then so we would watch the sports news to see the results covered in a few seconds.

Then in 2007, I had the opportunity to host a group of clients at the Melbourne Grand Prix. The entire weekend was an assault on my senses and I was hooked. For me the racing is only a part of the package, the cars are insanely cool, the technology is incredible, and the drivers have talent and skill that is out of this world. You have the personalities of the drivers, the principals and the engineers.

Since my first race in 2007 I have been to Melbourne another 6 times, Singapore twice and Malaysia, Austin and Mexico. My wife and I are planning to go to many more in the coming years…
