Every season has a beginning. And on February 12, IndyCar had theirs. Together with Circuit of the Americas, they opened the paddock and invited race fans to a full day of testing featuring every team on the 2019 grid.

And, race fans, don’t miss the inaugural IndyCar Classic, revving up Austin March 22-24, and writing the first chapter in a brand new racing legend.
