Fans awaiting the start of the 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series season with the first competitive timed laps of qualifying will be waiting through one more day. With many drivers still fighting to get a grip (literally) on the Sao Paulo street circuit, IndyCar officials have decided to move qualifying for the inaugural Indy 300 to Sunday morning. Qualifying was scheduled for today (Saturday) but the sanctioning body has swapped the time trials with a race day practice session.

While competitors eagerly await to opportunity to compete on the Brazilian 2.6 street course, concerns arisen to concrete patches that were just recently ground by abrasion machines. Providing additional time for the open wheel drivers to acquaint themselves to the new IZOD IndyCar event prior to race related qualifying, three full practice sessions will aid the race track surface as Dallara-Honda race cars can lay down a larger quantity of tire rubber.

The 2010 IZOD IndyCar season opening Sao Paulo Indy 300 is set for 11:30 AM Eastern time on TSN2 in Canada and on the Versus channel in the United States.
