Sage Karam will have more company for the second round of the iRacing Indycar challenge with Scott Dixon, Ed Carpenter and Robert Wickens set to make the grid.
Wickens planned on racing in round one, but his specially made wheel by Max Papis didn’t arrive in time, forcing the Canadian to withdraw.
Dreyer & Reinbold Racing’s Sage Karam won round one after leading all but two of the 45 laps with a 3.6 second gap to Felix Rosenqvist’s NTT DATA Honda.
The race will air live on NBCSN with the usual crew of Leigh Diffey, Townsend Bell and Paul Tracy presenting. Watkins Glen saw at total of 433,000 combined views across Youtube, Facebook and Twitch according to Indycar.
The broadcaster hasn’t been the only change made, a competition caution is planned to bunch the 29 car field up between laps 28 and 31.
Barber is round two of six, round three, on April 11th will be a ‘Drivers Choice’ before a random draw track a week later.
