The NTT IndyCar Series has unveiled a 17-race schedule for the 2023 racing season with no venue changes from the 2022 schedule and only one change in race order from 2022.

The 2023 season starts on the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida on March 5th before a several week gap to Texas Motor Speedway on April 2nd. The Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach returns in its traditional mid-April date with Barber Motorsports Park taking place two weeks after Long Beach on April 30th.

The month of May remains traditional with the Grand Prix of Indianapolis on Saturday, May 13th while the 107th running of the Indianapolis 500 will be on May 28th. The race in Detroit remains the week after Indianapolis but on a new venue as the race moves from Belle Isle to a downtown circuit for the June 4th date.

Road America is two weeks later on June 18th before the series heads back to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on July 2nd. The series has one more off week before a late summer stretch of eight races in a nine-week period starting on the streets of Toronto on July 16th.

The Iowa Speedway doubleheader is back on July 22nd and 23rd with two afternoon races before going to the streets of Nashville on Sunday, August 6th. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course will host the IndyCar/NASCAR tripleheader weekend again with the IndyCar race on August 12th.

WWT Raceway near St. Louis hosts the final oval race of the 2023 season on August 27th, but unlike 2022, the race is on Sunday afternoon instead of Saturday afternoon.

The west coast swing is intact with Portland International Raceway hosting IndyCar on Labor Day weekend and WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca hosting the season finale on September 10th.

The only swap on the schedule order from 2022 is that the IndyCar/NASCAR doubleheader weekend shifts to the week after Nashville instead of remaining the week before.

Other than Toronto being on the Peacock streaming service and USA Network airing Road America, Mid-Ohio and the second IndyCar race at the IMS road course, all other races will be on NBC.
