IndyCar St Louis: Updated start times, how to watch, entry list & more

All you need to know ahead of the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 in St Louis, round 15 of the 2023 NTT IndyCar Series.

Scott McLaughlin, Team Penske Chevrolet

This weekend’s event on the World Wide Technology Raceway oval – formerly known as Gateway – will comprise 260 laps (325 miles) around the 1.25-mile short track.

There have been seven different winners in 14 IndyCar Series races this season: Marcus Ericsson (St Petersburg), Josef Newgarden (Texas Motor Speedway, Indianapolis 500 and Iowa Speedway), Kyle Kirkwood (Long Beach), Scott McLaughlin (Barber Motorsports Park), Alex Palou (Indianapolis Road Course, Detroit, Road America and Mid-Ohio), Christian Lundgaard (Toronto) and Scott Dixon (Indy Road Course 2).

This will be the 15th IndyCar race at the track. It will mark the first time that Firestone’s alternate tire will be used on an oval track in a race.

Teams will be required to start the race on primary tires, and alternates will not be allowed to be used in qualifying. Teams must use one set of primary and one set of new (sticker) alternate tires for at least two laps in the race.

Alex Palou leads the standings by 101 points. If he leaves with a lead of 108, he becomes the 2023 champion. Dixon, Newgarden, McLaughlin, Pato O’Ward and Ericsson are the only drivers who can beat him.
