FORT WAYNE, Ind. (FORT WAYNE'S NBC) - Fort Wayne's NBC is the place to be Fourth of July weekend for Fort Wayne's IndyCar and NASCAR fans, as the first ever NASCAR Cup-Xfinity-INDYCAR tripleheader is set to take off.
Starting off July 4, 2020, at noon, the GMR Grand Prix will get the green light, as Noblesville's own Conor Daly, 28, is revving for a win at his hometown track, Indianpolis Motor Speedway.
"Oh, it never gets old," Daly said to Fort Wayne's NBC, via ZOOM.
"I love this state, love this city."
Following IndyCar, NASCAR will hold its first ever race at IMS, the Pennzoil 150 at the Brickyard at 3 p.m.
"I'm a fan first, without a doubt, and I have any NASCAR race that's on, on my TV," Daly said.
The veteran IndyCar racer won't have to watch this one on his flat screen.
"I really hope it happens more often."
The combination of IndyCar and NASCAR culminates Sunday with the Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400 at 4 p.m. on Fort Wayne's NBC.
