IndyCar extends deals with Chevrolet and Honda, delays new engine

INDIANAPOLIS — The IndyCar Series will continue running the same engines each of the next two seasons.

It also will be working with the same two engine manufacturers, Chevrolet and Honda, into the foreseeable future.

IndyCar president Jay Frye announced Saturday the three parties agreed to delay the introduction of a new engine until 2023 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. They also reached a multiyear contract extension, which fits neatly into the series’ five-year plan that runs through 2028.

“It’s been a huge challenge,” Frye said, referring to keeping this season on track. “So it’s great that there’s some clarity now — clarity with the schedule, clarity with this deal.”

I began stripping the car down and this is the beginning of my story.
