Description The Pennzoil 150 is a NASCAR Xfinity Series auto race held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway since 2012. It takes place the Saturday of Kroger Super Weekend. This race replaced the Kroger 200, which had been held at the nearby Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis, formerly known as Indianapolis Raceway Park, for the previous 30 years. Brad Keselowski won the inaugural event.
On January 15, 2020, new track owner Roger Penske announced that the race will move from the oval to the track's infield road-course; Penske had purchased the track in late-2019. Despite the switch, the NASCAR Cup Series' Brickyard 400 continues to race on the oval. Royal Dutch Shell took over as title sponsor of the race, renaming it the Pennzoil 150 after their Pennzoil brand.
On March 26, 2020, as part of changes to the 2020 IndyCar Series schedule to account for the COVID-19 pandemic, it was announced that the series' GMR Grand Prix—an IMS road course race typically held as a prelude to the Indianapolis 500—would be postponed to July 4, 2020, and form an IndyCar/NASCAR double-header with the Pennzoil 150
