IndyCar extends Grand Prix of St. Petersburg by 10 laps

IndyCar announced Monday the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg will increase to 110 laps, up 10 from previous races.

The increase is designed to discourage teams from using a fuel-conservation strategy to try to eliminate a pit stop. Similar changes were made for races at Long Beach, Milwaukee and Mid-Ohio.

The St. Petersburg race, now scheduled for 198 miles on the downtown waterfront course, will be at noon March 24. It will be televised on NBC Sports Network.
