INDIANAPOLIS, Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018 – The Indianapolis Motor Speedway regrets to announce that persistent rain has forced the postponement of all NASCAR track activity Saturday, Sept. 8 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Powered by Florida Georgia Line for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will start at 1 p.m. (ET) Sunday, one hour earlier than previously scheduled. The Lilly Diabetes 250 for the NASCAR Xfinity Series is scheduled for 10 a.m. Monday. The starting lineup for both races was set by the NASCAR Rule Book since qualifying for both races was rained out Saturday.

All tickets for the Lilly Diabetes 250 originally scheduled for today will be honored at the gate Monday.

“We’re sorry for any inconvenience that this inclement weather is creating for our fans,” IMS President J. Douglas Boles said. “We appreciate their loyalty and hope we have a great day of on-track action for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series on Sunday and the NASCAR Xfinity Series on Monday. We are hopeful the forecast improves tomorrow and Monday so we can see the exciting racing that everyone has looked forward to all year.”

New Sponsor for Brickyard 400, AKA “Brantley Gilbert Big Machine Brickyard 400”

Music industry leader Big Machine Label Group is the new entitlement sponsor of the Brickyard 400 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, one of the crown jewels of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

This year’s race, scheduled for Sunday, July 23 at IMS, will be called the Brantley Gilbert Big Machine Brickyard 400 . The chart-topping country star, signed to BMLG’s Valory Music Co. imprint, will attend the event and perform for fans during pre-race celebrations.

More details about the multi-year agreement, including plans for the 2018 Big Machine Brickyard 400, will be announced at this year’s race.

“I’m very excited today to officially announce that Big Machine and Brantley Gilbert are joining the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the 2017 Brickyard 400 NASCAR race!” said Big Machine Label Group President/CEO Scott Borchetta. “Racing has always been part of Big Machine’s DNA, and we’re thrilled to partner with the world’s most iconic racing brands.”

Said Indianapolis Motor Speedway President J. Douglas Boles: “We have enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Big Machine, and we’re thrilled to see that expand through this very unique entitlement sponsorship. This partnership will bring a big-name artist our fans know and love to IMS, enhancing what already is one of NASCAR’s marquee event weekends.”

Jeff Gordon To Drive Camaro ZL1 Pace Car at Brickyard 400

NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon will drive the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Pace Car to lead the field to the start of the 24th annual Brickyard 400 on Sunday, July 23 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Gordon will return in the Pace Car to the historic, 2.5-mile oval at IMS, where he is the only driver to win the Brickyard 400 five times (1994, 1998, 2001, 2004, 2014).

California native Gordon, who grew up in nearby Pittsboro, Indiana, has served as a NASCAR analyst for FOX Sports since retiring full time from the Cup Series after the 2015 season. He competed in the 2016 Brickyard 400 for Hendrick Motorsports as part of a limited schedule while serving as a replacement for the injured Dale Earnhardt Jr.

“It’s hard to believe this is the 24th running of the Brickyard 400,” Gordon said. “This has been a very special race over the years – for me and NASCAR. Winning at the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway was a dream of mine as a kid. I’m excited to lead the field to green at this year’s Brickyard 400, and I appreciate Doug Boles and Chevrolet for giving me this opportunity.”

Gordon’s 23-year career in the Cup Series was one of the greatest in NASCAR history. His five Brickyard 400 victories and three Daytona 500 victories are among the 93 Cup Series wins he earned during his career, third on the all-time list. His four season championships stand fourth on the all-time NASCAR list.

The incomparable career of Gordon received a huge boost when he won the inaugural Brickyard 400 on Aug. 6, 1994 at IMS. It was the first race for vehicles other than open-wheel cars at the facility since 1909 and the first race of any kind at IMS other than the Indianapolis 500 since 1916.

Gordon competed in the first 23 Brickyard 400 races, with five victories, three poles and 17 top-10 finishes.

Hoosier racing fans also remember Gordon for his success in United States Auto Club (USAC) competition before moving to NASCAR. Gordon was the 1990 USAC National Midget Series champion and followed with the 1991 USAC Silver Crown Series championship.

“Jeff Gordon is one of the greatest drivers to ever compete at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and we’re honored to welcome him back to pace the 24th annual Brickyard 400,” IMS President J. Douglas Boles said. “It’s only fitting Jeff will be out front and leading, a place where the fans of this great race are accustomed to seeing him.”

Gordon will drive a 2017 Camaro ZL1 that features:

  • LT4 6.2L direct-injected, supercharged V-8
  • All-new 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Magnetic Ride Control
  • Electronic limited-slip differential
  • 20-inch forged aluminum wheels
  • Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires
  • Brembo brakes with six-piston front calipers and two-piece rotors
  • 1.02g max cornering
  • 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds
  • Performance Data Recorder

The only content separating the Pace Car from a production model is unique graphics and an integrated Whelen LED safety lighting system.

Chevrolet has a storied history with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Chevrolet was founded in 1911, the year of the inaugural Indianapolis 500-Mile Race, and company cofounder Louis Chevrolet, along with brothers Arthur and Gaston, competed in early Indy 500 races. Arthur Chevrolet competed in the 1911 race, and Gaston Chevrolet won it in 1920.

A Chevrolet has won the Brickyard 400 16 times, more than five times as many victories as the next-closest manufacturer.

“This year marks the 24th anniversary of NASCAR racing at the Brickyard, and it is truly special that Chevrolet has been there from the beginning racing and pacing,” said Steve Majoros, director of marketing, Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers. “The Camaro ZL1 delivers unprecedented levels of technology and track capability, and we are proud to have Jeff Gordon behind the wheel of the Camaro ZL1 Pace Car.”
