Indy Lights

The Firestone Indy Lights Series is the final stepping stone to the IZOD IndyCar Series. Drivers compete on street circuits, natural terrain road courses and oval tracks. The series runs as a support series to the IZOD IndyCar Series. Since 2003 Indy Lights have been competing in the Freedom 100 at the venerable Indianapolis Motor Speedway on the Friday before the Indianapolis 500.

As a spec series all the cars use a 3.5 Liter engine producing about 420 horsepower. At the Indianapolis Motor Speedway the Indy Lights cars are capable of reaching speeds of 190 mph.
