Friday's schedule includes IndyCar practice and Indy NXT qualifying, as well as an Indy NXT Driver Autograph session.

When the weekend officially begins, the excitement will really ramp up. On Saturday, the day begins with qualifying for Saturday afternoon's Hy-Vee Homefront 250 and Sunday's Hy-Vee One Step 250. That's followed by the Indy NXT Race. Just before noon, country superstar Carrie Underwood will hit the stage.
