On March 13, INDYCAR released the following statement, canceling the first four NTT INDYCAR SERIES events.
After careful consideration, including regular communication with our event promoters, health officials, and the city administrations in our respective race markets regarding COVID-19, we have made the decision to cancel all NTT INDYCAR Series events through April. This begins with the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg which was to begin today and run through Sunday, March 15 and continues through the AutoNation INDYCAR Challenge at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas which was to take place April 24-26. Although we are disappointed to delay the start to this INDYCAR season and will miss our incredible fans who support us each year in St. Petersburg, Birmingham, Long Beach, and Austin, the safety of our fans, participants, staff, partners, and media will always remain our top priority. We will continue to coordinate with public health experts and government officials as we determine the appropriate plans for resuming our schedule.
Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg – March 15, 2020 – RESCHEDULED
The statement from INDYCAR came in the middle of a practice session for the Pirelli GT4 America Sprint series and following USF2000, Indy Pro 2000, Indy Lights and Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA. The session that was on track was immediately red and checkered flag.
On the next day, Saturday, March 14, the event put out the following statement for ticket holders, letting them know that they could let their tickets roll over to the 2021 event, or they could receive 110% credit for events at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Honda Indy Toronto, or Grand Prix of Portland. There is no option for a refund.
Ticket Purchasers on file for the March 13-15, 2020 event may choose to defer their purchased tickets for use at the March 2021 Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. Alternatively, ticket purchasers may elect to receive a credit for the full amount paid plus an additional 10% to apply towards future Green Savoree Racing Promotions events, including, but not limited to, grandstand seating, general admission, camping, RV space, paddock access and pit passes at either the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Honda Indy Toronto or Grand Prix of Portland. This 110% credit can be used in a single transaction during the remainder of the 2020 or 2021 season, subject to availability.
Ticket holders will receive detailed instructions and next steps via email Friday March 20, 2020. Thank you for your continued patience.
We look forward to racing on the streets of St. Petersburg March 2021!
Fans on the various social media platforms were not happy with the lack of refunds. Links to threads on:
The unhappy reaction from fans led to the event sending out another statement on March 15, clarifying what a ticket buyer agreed to when purchasing a ticket for the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. That statement is here:
On Saturday evening (March 14), 2020 ticket purchasers on file for the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg were notified of the credit being offered for the cancelled event. This communication was via email to each individual impacted, and posts were also placed on social media and the event website. This decision was not made lightly and was formed from research done across live sports, music and entertainment events nationally. It also considered unique temporary, purpose-built venues like ours which had events cancelled due to these extraordinary circumstances. The Green Savoree St. Petersburg LLC credit offer provides options to ticket purchasers and flexibility through 2021 that extend beyond the policy accepted and agreed to at the time of purchase which is ‘No refunds or exchanges. All sales final.’ This policy is posted on the event website, the point of purchase ticketing system used and agreed to at time of purchase by customers, and on the back of each event ticket. The applicable language of the policy as printed on the event ticket is provided below, and is customary and standard in the industry. The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented global event impacting us all. We hope our fans can understand and support us in this complicated situation.
Below is an excerpt of the applicable language from back of event ticket.
I am not entitled to a refund, replacement ticket, or other event admission material, or to payment for any damages of any kind for any reason from IndyCar or GSSP or Andersen including, without limitation, lost/damaged ticket, cancellation, shortening, rescheduling, or other alteration of the event. All sales are final – no money refunded or exchanges.
On March 26, the NTT INDYCAR SERIES released a tentative schedule that starts in Detroit and ends with the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on a date that is yet to be determined. Tickets from the original event will be honored. Here is what the Green-Savoree, the event promotors had to say.
INDYCAR announced earlier today that the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg is expected to be rescheduled for later in 2020. The event was originally set for March 13-15, 2020.
This shift to a later date is in support of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES’ efforts to run as many of its points championship races as possible in 2020 and would be expected to serve as the season finale round.
The rescheduled date is subject to the ongoing guidance and mandates of national, state and local authorities regarding public gatherings. The health and safety of all associated with this event will remain the priority of the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.
Previously purchased tickets to the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg would be valid and honored on the rescheduled date yet to be determined. Email email@example.com for any questions on ticket purchases and additional information.

Acura Grand Prix Of Long Beach – April 19, 2020 – CANCELLED
The longest running street circuit event on the NTT INDYCAR SERIES calendar, the Acura Grand Prix Of Long Beach was the first event to postpone, sending out the following statement on March 12:
In light of today’s announcement from the City of Long Beach prohibiting all large-scale events in the City through April 30, 2020, the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach will not take place as scheduled on April 17-19. While we recognize that this is a serious inconvenience for our loyal attendees, sponsors and other clients, nevertheless, this action is consistent with our primary objective of assuring the public’s safety and well-being at our event.
We are in conversation with the City of Long Beach, various race sanctioning bodies and the Long Beach Convention Center to discuss the viability of rescheduling this event at a later time in the year. If that is not possible, then we look forward to presenting the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach on April 16-18, 2021. Further details about possible refunds or credits will be forthcoming.
On March 17, David Malsher from Motorsport.com posted the following article –> GP Association of Long Beach still trying to rescue 2020 event.
After working with the City Of Long Beach, the The Grand Prix Association was unable to find a workable date later in the year. Here is the statement from March 18.
LONG BEACH, Calif. (March 18, 2020) – The Grand Prix Association of Long Beach today announced that it will not be able to conduct the 2020 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach at a date later in the year.
The Grand Prix Association also announced a ticket credit/refund policy for 2020 Acura Grand Prix ticket holders.
“Over the past few days, we have actively pursued the possibility of rescheduling the Acura Grand Prix to a later date this year with the City of Long Beach, the Convention Center, the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and our other race sanctioning bodies,” said Jim Michaelian, president and CEO of the Grand Prix Association. “We are very disappointed that we were unable to put something together for all our loyal fans and valued clients, but trying to reassemble all the elements that have made the Long Beach event such a success does not appear feasible for 2020. As a result, our attention will now be focused on planning the 46th Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach on April 16-18, 2021.”
With the Acura Grand Prix unable to be conducted, the following two options will be offered to 2020 ticket holders:
The first option allows ticket holders to receive a credit for tickets purchased which will apply to the same level of admission to the 2021 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach event. The credit will come with a Price Protection Plan which will not only protect them against any price increase for the 2021 Acura Grand Prix but also guarantee they can purchase the same level of ticket for the 2022 event at the 2020 price.
The second option gives ticket holders a full refund (less the processing fee) by April 30, 2020.
The 2021 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach will take place April 16-18.
AutoNation INDYCAR Challenge at Circuit of The Americas – April 26, 2020 – CANCELLED
On March 15, Circuit of The Americas announced that they would be laying off staff , saying in a statement:
“COTA is an amphitheater, racetrack, sports stadium, conference center, and place where fans and friends come together to create lading memories. Without concerts, races and games, we have limited us. Understandably and importantly, public safety take precedence over celebratory gatherings. It is our greatest hope that our community remains healthy and, when the virus passes, we reunite for many years of treasured moments with friends and family.
We are heartbroken for our employees (and their families) who spend all year preparing to welcome guests from Austin and all around the globe, but now find themselves without work. The joy of creating memorable occasions has been replaced with the disappointing reality of a worldwide crisis. It is indeed a terrible time in the event and hospitality business. Most of all, we hope everyone stays healthy, heeds the caution advised by leaders and experts, and comes back to COTA when good times return.
“In the next 90 days alone, events representing nearly 600,000 ticketed visitors have been postponed, canceled, or are in jeopardy,”
He said a “reduced staff” remains but did not elaborate when asked for an exact figure beyond saying, “Half.”
This event did not appear on the tentative NTT INDYCAR SERIES schedule that was released on March 26, 2020, and Mark Miles, CEO and President of Penske Entertainment confirmed that the race has been cancelled.
GMR Grand Prix – May 9 – MOVED to July 4
104th Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge – May 24 – MOVED to August 23
On Sunday, March 15, the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) issued guidance recommending that any in-person event consisting of 50 people of more be canceled or postponed.
The full guidance, said:
Large events and mass gatherings can contribute to the spread of COVID-19 in the United States via travelers who attend these events and introduce the virus to new communities. Examples of large events and mass gatherings include conferences, festivals, parades, concerts, sporting events, weddings, and other types of assemblies. These events can be planned not only by organizations and communities but also by individuals.
Therefore, CDC, in accordance with its guidance for large events and mass gatherings, recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States.
Events of any size should only be continued if they can be carried out with adherence to guidelines for protecting vulnerable populations, hand hygiene, and social distancing. When feasible, organizers could modify events to be virtual.
This recommendation does not apply to the day to day operation of organizations such as schools, institutes of higher learning, or businesses. This recommendation is made in an attempt to reduce introduction of the virus into new communities and to slow the spread of infection in communities already affected by the virus. This recommendation is not intended to supersede the advice of local public health officials.
Eight weeks from March 15, takes us to Sunday, May 10, the day after the GMR Grand Prix at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
On March 16, INDYCAR and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway put out the following joint statement with regards to the two races at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway
“We are aware of the CDC’s interim guidance suggesting the postponement of events involving more than 50 people over the next eight weeks. Our priority is to do our part in protecting the public health while still conducting the 104th Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge as scheduled on May 24. This continues to be a dynamic situation which we are monitoring constantly in coordination with federal, state, local and public health officials. We are planning for all contingencies and will be prepared to run the GMR Grand Prix and Indy 500 as the COVID-19 situation permits.”
Later on March 16, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway sent the following message to fans:
Dear Race Fan,
As you may know, the CDC’s interim guidance suggests the postponement of events involving more than 50 people over the next eight weeks.

This continues to be a dynamic situation that we are monitoring constantly in coordination with federal, state, local and public health officials. We are planning for all contingencies and will be prepared to run the GMR Grand Prix and Indy 500 as the COVID-19 situation permits.
We appreciate your understanding and patience as everyone navigates these challenging times. We will continue to keep you updated on all developments regarding the Month of May schedule.

The Indianapolis 500 was originally scheduled for Sunday, May 24, in its traditional spot on the calendar during Memorial Day weekend. The GMR Grand Prix was scheduled to be run on Saturday, May 9.
“The Month of May at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is my favorite time of year, and like our fans, I am disappointed that we have had to reschedule the Indianapolis 500,” Roger Penskesaid. “However, the health and safety of our event participants and spectators is our top priority, and we believe that postponing the event is the responsible decision with the conditions and restrictions we are facing. We will continue to focus on ways we can enhance the customer experience in the months ahead, and I’m confident we will welcome fans with a transformed facility and a global spectacle when we run the world’s greatest race.”
“Memorial Day weekend has always provided Indianapolis 500 fans an opportunity to honor the men and women who have fought and sacrificed for our nation’s freedom,” Penske Entertainment Corp. President and CEO Mark Miles said. “This August, we’ll also have a unique and powerful opportunity to honor the contributions and heroism of the doctors, nurses, first responders and National Guard members serving on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19. We’re grateful for the patience of our fans as we’ve navigated this situation, and we extend our thanks to NBC for its terrific partnership and diligent work to maximize broadcast coverage with this new schedule.”
