XM Satellite Radio is going into it's fourth year as the satellite radio provider for the Indy Racing League, with the first race of the IndyCar Series' 2008 season: the Indy 300.
As with prior years, the entire 2008 IndyCar Series season, including the Indianapolis 500 on May 25th, will be broadcast live on XM. The satellite radio provider will also air pre-race programming, interviews and commentary, as well as the live wheel-to-wheel action presented by the IMS Radio Network.
With the recent (re)unification of open-wheel racing - IRL and Champ Car are ending their 12-year civil war - the IndyCar Series will be expanding its schedule to 18 races. This will offer up a mix of short oval, super speedway and road/street events, making it the most diverse schedule in all of motorsports.
XM is also a major associate sponsor of the Andretti Green Racing's No. 7 Honda-powered Dallara driven by Danica Patrick (pictured above, in case you didn't guess).
The AGR team - featuring drivers Danica Patrick, Marco Andretti and Tony Kanaan as well as legend Michael Andretti - will also be launching their 2nd season of "The Andretti Green Racing Hour," starting in its weekly time slot on March 25th at 7pm ET on XM Sports Nation (ch 144).
