However, the 2.5-mile track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway — also known as “The Brickyard” — may be subject to a weather delay. According to IndyStar, the National Weather Service is calling for a 50% chance of rain and with a possibility for thunderstorms at approximately 2:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, May 26.

IndyCar drivers must complete 101 laps before a race is considered official, according to the official IndyCar Series rulebook. If fewer than 101 laps are run, then the race will resume on the next dry day.

The 103rd Indianapolis 500 “Command to Start Engines” is currently scheduled to be announced at 12:38 p.m. ET, and the green flag will wave at 12:45 p.m. ET on Sunday, May 26, 2019.

The 2019 race will be televised on NBC for the first time after being broadcast by ABC since 1965. Former NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be the pace car driver.
