After a one-year hiatus, the NTT IndyCar Series returns this weekend for a doubleheader at Iowa Speedway.

The field will feature 26 drivers to make up the 11th and 12th races on the 2022 schedule. One of the more unique features for this weekend is the qualifying format.

Drivers will turn two consecutive hot laps on the fast, .894-mile oval. The first lap will determine their starting spot for the opening race, the 250 at 4 p.m. ET on Saturday, while the second lap will set the starting grid for the Hy-Vee Salute to Farmers 300 at 3 p.m. ET on Sunday. The coverage for both races will be broadcast on NBC and the IndyCar Radio Network.

Below is the spotter’s guide followed by the pit-assignments for practice, qualifying and the race. Andretti Autosport’s Colton Herta will have the first stall exiting pit-road for the weekend.
