Last contact with the oval before the Indianapolis 500

After three days without activity, this Friday the action returns to the oval of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with the traditional Carburation Day. This is the last one they had on the track before Indianapolis 500 that will take place on Sunday within the framework of the fifth date of the 2024 tournament of the IndyCar.

ADVERSE CLIMATE FORECAST

Although enthusiasm for the 108th edition of the Indy 500 is growing, the climate forecast is not favorable as it indicates rain, something that could cause delays or even a postponement because the safety of the pilots is paramount and wet track represents a significant risk.

Historically, if conditions do not improve, the race can be rescheduled for the next available day with better weather, which is forecast to be Tuesday, May 28.
