IndyCar is the biggest premium open-wheel racing series in the United States. Originally debuted as Indy Racing League in 1996, the IndyCar franchise has earned a prestigious spot in the world of motorsports.
The 2020 IndyCar Series is going surprisingly strong, considering that this year isn’t the best year for hosting major sports events in crowded areas. Now that IndyCar has commenced its 2020 season behind closed doors, many of you are probably wondering whether it’s possible to watch IndyCar races online.
For Amazon Firestick owners like you, we have prepared this guide to a few online streaming services that let you watch Indycar on Firestick. You can learn more about them in detail later in this guide.

The official NBC Sports app for Fire TV devices offer thousands of live sports events from NBC, NBC Sports, NBCSN, and many more. You can stream the 24/7 NBC and NBCSN channel live via the NBC Sports app if only log in with a cable or satellite television provider account.
The NBC Sports app also lets you switch between alternate camera angles for select IndyCar matches. It even offers realtime synchronized statistics for race events. If you don’t have a cable subscription, then NBC Sports Gold is an alternative solution for you.
NBC Sports Gold offers subscription-based passes to those who don’t have a cable or satellite TV connection. At the time of this writing, the service is offering the IndyCar Pass for $54.99. With the IndyCar Pass, you can stream select practice, qualifying, and race days live via the NBC Sports app. In addition, past television broadcasts will be available to watch on-demand.

If you buy an IndyCar Pass right now, the subscription will last you through 31st January next year, which is the end of the IndyCar season. You can link your NBC Sports Gold subscription with an NBCUniversal profile, then sign in to the NBC Sports app on Firestick to enjoy IndyCar races without cable.
