Honda Indy Toronto Race 1 Postponed

  • Rain, visibility issues force postponement
  • Race 1 of doubleheader weekend reset for 10:30 a.m. Sunday
  • Race 2 scheduled for 4:15 p.m. Sunday

Visibility issues Saturday along the "Lake Shore Boulevard" back stretch of the 1.755-mile Honda Indy Toronto street circuit, resulting from steady afternoon rains, forced Verizon IndyCar Series officials to postpone the scheduled 85-lap opening race of a doubleheader weekend in Toronto. The decision to postpone was made after two attempts to start the race, and a two hour, 30-minute delay while attempts were made to improve track conditions.

The first race now rescheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, with the race distance reduced to 75 laps. Sunday's second 75-lap race will now start at 4:15 p.m., with both races televised on the NBC Sports Network.
