Last year's Freedom 100 epitomized the racing of the Indy Pro Series. We saw numerous lead changes, side-by-side racing and a late shootout for the checkered flag. To be able to showcase that type of racing at a venue like Indianapolis is extraordinary.

As we prepare for the growth of the series in conjunction with our new $3 million prize structure, this development will also level the playing field for new teams entering the series. All of the set-up data that teams acquired in the past will have to be reassessed.
Our previous payout schedule was 20 years old, much like other series' still are. It was time for an increase, and this distribution plan rewards each and every team that takes the green flag.
We're starting our fifth season of competition, and this is the timeframe we expected to see the growth in the series. We had to establish a foothold, and we've done that. Now we're seeing more drivers and teams who want to compete in the series because we are managing the cost, and we've improved the prize payout. We expect even more cars on the grid when we start the season.
