Texas IndyCar qualifying cancelled due to weather

By

The NTT IndyCar Series doubleheader at Texas Motor Speedway has already been affected by weather.

Humid conditions kept moisture hanging around the 1.5-mile superspeedway, which extended track drying efforts and postponed practice until 1:30 p.m. CT. Although the 90-minute session kicked off the weekend’s festivities, the series opted to cancel qualifying for tonight’s Genesys 300.

As a result, the field will be set by entrant points, which means Alex Palou’s No. 10 Chip Ganassi Racing Honda will lead the field to the green flag, set to wave at 6:10 p.m. local time.

The only qualifying session of the weekend was originally supposed to set the field for both races: Lap 1 for Race 1 and Lap 2 for Race 2.

While tonight’s race is set on entrant points, it has not been confirmed — but is expected — that tomorrow’s XPEL 375 will follow the same format. Green flag for tomorrow’s race is set for 4:15 p.m. local time.
