‘It’s an international series now:’ IndyCar still racing locally but appealing more globally

MONTEREY, California —So, with one of its best American drivers possibly moving to the best racing series in the world,

now seems like a good time to think about how IndyCar is known around the world.

The NTT IndyCar Series championship will come down to a five-way race on Sunday at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca

. The drivers come from four different countries (Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, and the United States).

The Borg-Warner Trophy is getting ready to go on its second European victory tour in three years. Marcus Ericsson will celebrate winning the

Indy 500 in his Scandinavian hometown of Kumla, where the King of Sweden, who is one of many new IndyCar fans in the Nordics

 is on the guest list and hopes to come. 
European drivers are moving to the series to find long-term jobs,
