Reigning IndyCar champion and defending race winner Alex Palou leads a field of 25 drivers and teams that are set to do battle on the 12-turn, 1.964-mile road course.

Firestone will provide six sets of primary (black sidewall) tires, and four sets of the alternate (red sidewall) compound. (Note: A seventh set of primary tires is available to any car fielding a rookie driver.)

Additionally, there will be 200 seconds of Push-to-Pass available for the 80-lap race, which will allow a maximum burst of up to 20 seconds per use. The boost is not available on the initial start or restart unless it is the final two laps or three minutes of a timed race.

The 16th race of the season will begin at 3 p.m. ET on Sunday, with live coverage on NBC, Peacock, the IndyCar Radio Network and IndyCar Live!
