The field is set for the upcoming Verizon IndyCar Series season, which takes the green flag in less than one month at St. Petersburg.

The March 11 kickoff will eventually see 17 races go into the books – including a return to the Pacific Northwest in Portland – as the series moves from coast to coast until the Sept. 16 finale at Sonoma Raceway. And with all of the known drivers locked into place for part- and full-time rides, here’s a look at the car count and who will be each car during the championship.
