Produced by Penske Entertainment and VICE Media Group, 100 DAYS TO INDY charts the adrenaline-fueled journeys of NTT INDYCAR SERIES' best drivers in their pursuits of the top spot at the iconic Indianapolis 500 Mile Race, the world's largest single-day sporting event.
Following bold, brash personalities in their on and off-track lives, the 100-day build-up to the final showdown begins on the starting grid of the 2023 season's first race.

The global field of 33 drivers racing toward the prestigious Borg-Warner Trophy hails from 15 nations and includes four-time winner Helio Castroneves (Brazil), who is chasing a record-breaking fifth win, and 2022 winner Marcus Ericsson (Sweden). But earning's racing's most sought-after prize means they'll first have to see off two-time series champion Josef Newgarden (USA), plus a whole new generation of young drivers vying for their slice of the multi-million dollar winnings, including Pato O'Ward (Mexico), Colton Herta (USA) and Christian Lundgaard (Denmark).
100 DAYS TO INDY is directed by Emmy(R) Award-winner Patrick Dimon, and executive producer is Bryan Terry for VICE. Adam Marinelli and Patrick Dimon are co-Executive Producers.
