IMS Changing Networks Starting in 2019

Indianapolis, IN –- In a statement issued March 21, Indianapolis Motor Speedway President J. Douglas Boles revealed that the Verizon IndyCar Series and Indianapolis 500 will be included in NBC Sports’ Championship Season marketing campaign starting in 2019.
The move replaces ABC as the network television home of the Indy 500. ABC began televising the race in 1965 and will broadcast it for the 54th year on May 27, making it the longest consecutive relationship between a major sporting event and a broadcast network in American history.
