Participants from all three levels of the Road to Indy will race again this weekend – at least practically – when the Ricmotech Road to Indy presented by Cooper Tires iRacing eSeries starts a schedule for five races at 4:00 p.m. ET Saturday.
Drivers will take part in five road circuit events, starting with the Barber Motorsports Park, followed by the Circuit of The Americas, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (Formula 1 Grand Prix Circuit), Road America and the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
A total of 30 Road to Indy drivers will mingle with some veterans as four team owners and former drivers have entered the fight, including Ricardo Juncos from Juncos Racing, David Martinez from DEForce Racing, Peter Dempsey from Turn 3 Motorsport and Louis Meyer, great-grandson triple Indianapolis 500 winner Louis Meyer of Legacy Autosport.

All participants will race for a reason, because registration fees will be donated to a fund that supports COVID-19’s relief efforts. Using the current Road to Indy points system, a champion will be crowned who will distribute the money raised to a good cause.
