Motorsports docuseries 100 Days To Indy will return for a second season at CW. The network has renewed the series from Penske Entertainment for premiere on the network this spring.
The six-part unscripted series 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.”
This season, reigning Indianapolis 500 champion Josef Newgarden returns to defend his epic race day triumph. He’ll be joined by rising star Pato O’Ward, 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.” The 2024 edition 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.
“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.”
The new NTT IndyCar Series season kicks off this March in St. Petersburgh, Florida, then moves on to the Southern California desert for a 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 month of May at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
100 Days To Indy is produced by Penske Entertainment. Emmy winners Patrick Dimon and Adam Marinelli serve as co-executive producers.
