TAKING SHAPE IN THE SAND

Four champions to pose with sand-sculptured trophy in Miami

                The IndyCar Series’ coast-to-coast season is drawing near. To mark the Florida stops on the tour, the four active IndyCar Series champions will pose with an over-sized sand sculpture of the championship trophy at 3:30 p.m. (EST) Feb. 23 at the Fontainebleau Resort in Miami. All participants will be available for one-on-one interviews. (Note: Following the event, high-resolution photos will be available for download at indycar.com/media)

                For the first time, the IndyCar Series will open and close its season in Florida. The season kicks off April 5 with the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. Six months later, the IndyCar Series will crown its champion under the lights Oct. 10 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

                IndyCar Series teams will have an opportunity Feb. 24-25 to test on the 1.5-mile oval in Homestead, Fla., to prepare for the season. Fans are invited to attend free of charge from the Speedway Club fourth-floor viewing area. In addition to free admission, Homestead-Miami Speedway will provide free parking, free hot dogs and free popcorn (with additional snacks also available).
