IndyCar’s ‘100 Days To Indy’ Returning For Second Season

MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Television viewers will get another chance to see exclusive, behind-the-scenes stories in the NTT IndyCar Series as IndyCar and The CW announced Season 2 of “100 Days to Indy.”

IndyCar, Penske Entertainment and The CW announced the six-part documentary-style series will return later this Spring, culminating with the 108th Indianapolis 500.

The six-part unscripted series will debut later this Spring leading into the Memorial Day Weekend Indianapolis 500.

“We are thrilled to bring another season of ‘100 Days To Indy’ to The CW and continue to grow our portfolio of quality sports programming,” said Heather Olander, head of unscripted programming, The CW Network. “Last season gave fans unprecedented access behind the scenes of IndyCar racing leading up to the biggest race of the year, the Indy 500. 

“We featured Josef Newgarden’s journey to the Brickyard in Indianapolis to become last year’s Indy 500 winner. We look forward to another season riding along with the incredible drivers and capturing all the action leading up to this year’s race.”

This season, reigning Indianapolis 500 winner Josef Newgarden returns to defend his epic race day triumph, with an abundance of generational talent hot on his heels. This includes rising star Pato O’Ward, whose dynamic and energetic personality continues to earn him a legion of enthusiastic supporters across the globe.

Former Indy 500 winner Marcus Ericsson, who placed second via a dramatic last lap pass in 2023, and IndyCar champion Alex Palou, who led for 36 laps in last year’s Indy 500, also return with unfinished business to settle. 

The 2024 edition of the famed competition will also see one of racing’s top champions, NASCAR Cup Series driver Kyle Larson, make a special bid for motorsports glory in his first attempt at the Indy 500.

The new IndyCar season kicks off this March on the sunny streets of St. Petersburg, Fla. before arriving in the Southern California desert for a brand new $1 million challenge at the scenic Thermal Club. 

Every step of that journey will be chronicled on “100 Days To Indy,” totaling six IndyCar races and the entire epic month of May at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

“Nothing matches the show-stopping, high-octane intensity of the Indy 500,” said Penske Entertainment President & CEO Mark Miles. “The CW will once again give viewers a front row seat as the charismatic stars of the NTT IndyCar Series chase racing glory. It should be a thrilling ride and an extremely compelling watch for viewers around the country.”

“100 Days To Indy” is produced by Penske Entertainment. Emmy Award-winners Patrick Dimon and Adam Marinelli serve as co-executive producers.
