The new agreement continues a partnership that began in 2014 and maintains Firestone’s naming rights on the NTT Indycar Series event through the 2023 season.

Firestone is completing its 21st consecutive season as the sole tire supplier of the NTT Indycar Series. With the event returning to its usual season-opening spot on the schedule in 2021, Firestone says it will help the NTT Indycar Series “wave the green flag on a fresh start” next year at the same track where the 2020 season will conclude.

“While the road to St. Petersburg has certainly been different this year, we are thrilled to return to the streets of St. Pete and help crown an NTT Indycar Series champion,” said Lisa Boggs, director of Bridgestone Americas motorsports. “Firestone tires have taken the checkers with the winner at all 15 Indycar Series races here, and we’re proud to continue growing our partnership with Green Savoree Racing Promotions to support this marquee event in a community that shares our passion for the sport.”

Bridgestone Americas and Indycar announced a multi-year partnership extension last year that keeps Firestone as the official tire of the NTT Indycar Series through 2025. Every season the Firestone Race Tire Engineering team develops race tire specifications to meet the demands of each unique oval, road and street course circuit on the NTT Indycar Series schedule.

The 2020 Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg took place Oct. 23-25 and is the final race of the 2020 NTT Indycar Series season. Event information, including the COVID-19 event protocols for spectators, is online at gpstpete.com.
