The CW Network Orders Second Season of ‘100 Days to Indy’

The CW Network today announced the motorsports documentary series 100 DAYS TO INDY will return for a second season this spring. The six-part unscripted series from Penske Entertainment takes viewers behind the scenes and onto the track with the NTT INDYCAR SERIES superstar drivers as they prepare to compete for racing’s greatest prize: the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race.

“We are thrilled to bring another season of 100 DAYS TO INDY to The CW and continue to grow our portfolio of quality sports programming,” said Heather Olander, Head of Unscripted Programming, The CW Network. “Last season gave fans unprecedented access behind the scenes of INDYCAR racing leading up to the biggest race of the year, the Indy 500. We featured Josef Newgarden’s journey to the Brickyard in Indianapolis to become last year’s Indy 500 winner. We look forward to another season riding along with the incredible drivers and capturing all the action leading up to this year’s race.”

“Nothing matches the show-stopping, high-octane intensity of the Indy 500,” said Penske Entertainment President & CEO Mark Miles. “The CW will once again give viewers a front row seat as the charismatic stars of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES chase racing glory. It should be a thrilling ride and an extremely compelling watch for viewers around the country.”

This season, reigning Indianapolis 500 champion Josef Newgarden returns to defend his epic race day triumph, with an abundance of generational talent hot on his heels. This includes rising star Pato O’Ward, whose dynamic and energetic personality continues to earn him a legion of enthusiastic supporters across the globe. Former Indy 500 champion Marcus Ericsson, who placed second via a dramatic last lap pass in 2023, and SERIES champion Alex Palou, who led for 36 laps in last year’s “Greatest Spectacle in Racing,” also return with unfinished business to settle. The 2024 edition of the famed competition will also see one of racing’s top champions, Kyle Larson, make a special bid for motorsports glory in his first attempt at the Indy 500.

The new NTT INDYCAR SERIES season kicks off this March on the sunny streets of St. Petersburgh, Florida before arriving in the Southern California desert for a brand new $1 million challenge at the scenic Thermal Club. 100 DAYS TO INDY will chronicle every step of the journey to the Indy 500, totaling six INDYCAR races and the entire epic month of May at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

100 DAYS TO INDY is produced by Penske Entertainment. Emmy® Award-winners Patrick Dimon and Adam Marinelli serve as co-executive producers.
