[B]T.3.2.[/B] The first free practice session is 90 minutes in length, while the second free practice session is 60 minutes in length. [B]T.3.3.[/B] Qualifying will vary between ovals, road and street courses, and the Indianapolis 500. [B]T.3.3.1.[/B] Qualifying for normal oval events will require all entries to run on track alone, having an outlap, and four timed laps to set the fastest possible lap time. Entries are then arranged based on each entry's best lap time. [B]T.3.3.2.[/B] Qualifying on road and street courses will see all entries qualifying together in a three-stage knockout format. Q1 will determine positions 20-28. Q2 will determine positions 11-19 and Q3 will be the final session to determine the first five rows of the grid. [B]T.3.3.3.[/B] Qualifying for the Indianapolis 500 will see qualifying take place over two days. Day 1 will be Pole Day. The first four rows, or top 8 based on time at the end of the day, will be locked into their positions. Day 2 will be Bump Day. All of the non-secured entries from Pole Day will be required to run again, with positions 9-33 being determined. [B]T.3.3.4.[/B] Qualifying results are locked to entries, not drivers. If a team needs to replace a driver between qualifying and the race, the entry will remain in the field, but will be moved to the rear of the grid for the driver change. [B]T.3.4.[/B] Race event lengths will vary based on circuit type and importance to the calendar. [B]T.3.4.1.[/B] Road and street course events will follow the traditional Grand Prix race distance of 190 miles or 300 kilometers. [B]T.3.4.2.[/B] Events at ovals smaller than 1.25 miles in length will have race distances of 225 miles. [B]T.3.4.3.[/B] Events at ovals larger than 1.25 miles in length will have race distances of 300 miles. [B]T.3.4.4.[/B] Oval events designated as Triple Crown events will have race distances of 500 miles. [B]T.3.5.[/B] In the event that a race weekend has two races, the Friday of the race weekend will contain the free practice sessions, as normal. The rest of the event weekend will depend on how the event is structured. [B]T.3.5.1.[/B] If the doubleheader weekend is on a road or street course, Saturday will see the first race of the doubleheader held, with qualifying for that race happening 4 hours prior to the race start. The process will be repeated for the second race on Sunday.

The series is designed to fill the gap left when Citadel Promotions cancelled the Indy Lights program at the end of the 2015 season. The series will use from the stockpile of remaining Dallara HV18 chassis that were produced between 2010 and 2019, equipped with a naturally aspirated Nissan VK45DE 4.5 liter V8 engine, tuned to produce 500 brake horsepower. The series is set to feature between 12 and 14 teams for the 2021, with each team required to field 2 cars.
