The majority of the field that will attempt to qualify for the 105th Indianapolis 500 will take part in the Thursday-Friday Open Test at IMS.
Few surprises were revealed on the entry list, with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing’s nomination of Sage Karam to driver serving as one combination that was not previously confirmed. Paretta Autosport will make its IndyCar debut at the test with Simona De Silvestro, and as RACER noted on Monday, a new name to the series in Dale Coyne Racing’s Cody Ware will take part in the Rookie Orientation Program.
Of the anticipated entries missing from the list of 32, Andretti Autosport’s sixth driver will not take part in the test. A.J. Foyt Racing’s third and fourth entries aren’t included, and Top Gun Racing won’t be present with RC Enerson.
The test will be broadcast via NBC’s Peacock live streaming platform.
