The city of Sao Paulo will host the opening race of the 2010 season of the Indy Racing League, the largest category of American racing. The race will be on a street circuit and it is scheduled for March 14 and confirms São Paulo's nature of staging great worldwide events, once it's already home to the Brazil Formula 1 Grand Prix staged at the Interlagos racetrack.

After ten years away from Brazil, the Indy Racing League had already announced its return to the country in 2010. Sao Paulo had Rio de Janeiro, Ribeirão Preto and Salvador as competitiors. Between 1996 and 2000, the category was hosted in Rio at Jacarepagua circuit.
