LIVE//: Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix #[Live|Stream]
After the 2020 event was canceled due to the pandemic, the NTT IndyCar Series returns to Belle Isle for the two-day event, the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix.
It is one of the major auto races in the state of Michigan, behind NASCAR’s appearances at Michigan International Speedway, and has seen a rise in popularity over recent years.
The seventh and eighth races on the 2021 schedule are the first events since Helio Castronevas took the checkered flag at the Indy 500. The Brazilian has won three times in Detroit, tied for the most wins on Belle Isle with Scott Dixon, who has won at least one race at each of the past two events.
Former winners that are expected to be competing this weekend include Josef Newgarden (2019), Will Power (2016), Sebastien Bourdais (2015, 2016), Graham Rahal (Only driver to win both races in a weekend, 2017), Simon Pagenaud (2013) and Ryan Hunter-Reay (2018).
Coming into the weekend, Spanish driver Alex Palou leads the series in points, just a few ahead of Dixon. Palou started the Indy season strong with a win at the opening race in Alabama, with Dixon earning a win in Texas. So far, no driver has won more than a single race this season.
