The idea has been floated to add a road course race at IMS during the Indy Car season, but there are differing opinions.
3-time Indy 500 winner Dario Franchitti says he‘s a traditionalist and feels only one race should be held at IMS.
Franchitti says he‘s had discussions with Hulman & Co. CEO Mark Miles about the road race and says Miles assured him a road race would not take away from the heritage of the 500, and Franchitti says he‘ll take Miles‘ word for it.
2013 Indy 500 winner Tony Kanaan says the IMS road course is a “fun track” and feels there are two spots to pass, as opposed to other tracks that have only one.
Kanaan says when the race would possibly he held doesn‘t matter to him, but he adds that the road race would not attract the business the 500 does.
