Season 2 of ‘100 Days To Indy’ headed to Netflix

The thumbnail of Kyle Kirkwood’s worst day at the Indianapolis 500 will be replaced much sooner than expected.

Season 1 of the VICE TV- and Penske Entertainment-produced docuseries “100 Days To Indy” landed at Netflix nearly one year after it debuted on The CW, and with Season 2 ready to conclude after Josef Newgarden went back-to-back at the Speedway on Sunday, the new episodes from the six-part series won’t have to wait until 2025 to appear on the world’s largest streamer.

The exact launch date of Season 2 on Netflix is being finalized by all parties, but the good news for the series and its entrants and their sponsors is Netflix wants more IndyCar.


“Top line, we’re thrilled,” Penske Entertainment communications VP Alex Damron told RACER. “The reception to Season 1 was really positive. On Netflix, it was part of their trending category for several weeks. Since then, talks have primarily taken place between the folks at The CW and Netflix regarding Season 2, and they’ve obviously been really productive and have resulted in the ability for Season 2 to be streamed sooner rather than later.

“We’re still waiting on an exact date when the new season will upload to the platform, but it’s really, really good news for us. And we can’t wait to push people to watch the new season on Netflix. In addition, it’s on The CW.”

The embrace of 100 Days by Netflix, which boasts more than 250,000,000 global subscribers, is bringing the series to a wider audience than any other delivery method IndyCar has in its arsenal.

“There’s a huge audience on that platform,” Damron added. “It’s a younger demo. It’s a very worldly demo. And it’s great to see 100 Days To Indy there and see it really gaining some momentum as well.”
