The Music City Grand Prix is one of the newest events on the IndyCar calendar, having its first race in 2021. Despite being a street circuit, there are some very high-speed sections of this track.

So far, both Marcus Ericsson and Scott Dixon have stood on the top step of the podium, but will we see a first-time winner around here this weekend?

Josef Newgarden will be full of confidence after back-to-back victories in Iowa, but the favourite will be Alex Palou. The Spaniard has had four wins so far this season and leads the championship by 80 points going into Round 13.

The Indy NXT Series will also be in action this weekend.
