This 16th annual event, featuring the NTT IndyCar Series’ season-opening race for the 10th straight year, is set for March 13-15, 2020, in downtown St. Petersburg.
Renewal customers who purchase three-day grandstand seats get a Champions Club membership when placing orders through the Oct. 31st deadline closing at 9 p.m. ET.
“Our event countdown is on with ticket renewals starting.
