For 2018, the IMS Radio Network still requires stations to carry the Indianapolis 500®, the Brickyard 400® and a minimum of three (3) Verizon IndyCar Series® races for a “no fees” basis.  If your station only wants to carry the Indianapolis 500® and/or other IndyCar events, there are no other requirements or fees.

If your station (or station market group) is unable to carry the Indianapolis 500®, the Brickyard 400® and a minimum of three (3) Verizon IndyCar Series races, the Network will allow to you to broadcast the Indianapolis 500®, the Brickyard 400® and pay the IMS Radio Network a licensing fee of $500.00. 50% of the $500.00 is due with your contract and the remaining 50% is due by May 1, 2018. Fees are to be made payable to: “IMS Radio Network.”

The IMS Radio Network will provide up to two (2) General Admission race tickets (no assigned seat) and up to twenty (20) qualification tickets for the Indianapolis 500®.  The IMS Radio Network will also provide up to two (2) reserved seat tickets to the Brickyard 400® and up to twenty (20) Brickyard 400® qualification tickets, which are also good for the Xfinity® Series race. You must carry the event and all ticket requests must be made when completing your contract and received before May 1, 2018.

Race promos, logos, race highlights for your sportscast, podcasts and other information will be available throughout the year at http://indycarradio.com 

ATTENTION PERFORMANCE RACING NETWORK (PRN) AFFILIATES: You must have a contract with the IMS Radio Network to carry NASCAR’s® Brickyard 400® weekend broadcasts. Your PRN contract does NOT grant you permission to carry the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup® race nor the XFINITY Series® race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway September 8-9, 2018. For permission to air a broadcast from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway requires a contract with the IMS Radio Network.

A station broadcasting or rebroadcasting an event from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway without a contract with the IMS Radio Network could result in a licensing fee of up to $5,000.00.
