Since 2012, when the Circuit of the Americas (aka COTA) opened in Austin, fans have been clamoring for some IndyCar action. If you don’t know what that means—IndyCar is the country’s fastest, biggest, and baddest open-wheel racing series, sort of the All American version of Formula 1.
And now it’s finally here! The inaugural IndyCar Classic will take place at COTA March 22-24.
There will also be three other series racing throughout the weekend. Indy Lights, which is the class just basically the minor league of IndyCar where future stars are developing. There’s also the Mazda MX-5 Cup and the return of an old X Games favorite, Stadium Super Trucks, which go off ramps on track at about 70 mph and get some serious air..
On top of all this, Muse will perform in Austin360 Amphitheater on Saturday night! The last time they played this venue, tickets sold out fast. Both the 3-day and Saturday-only IndyCar tickets will receive access to the 200 level section and the H-E-B Lawn for the show. Optional pit and seating upgrades are available for purchase, but you don’t need them to enjoy the show. Click here for more info.
Lastly, there will be live music on the Lone Star Stage all weekend featuring local Austin legends like Asleep at the Wheel and Dale Watson to exciting up-and-comers like Jonathan Terrell.
So break out of your entertainment rut and get hip to the fun of IndyCar! It’s a crazy fun spectacle that everyone can appreciate.
