Will Power won the 2022 Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix, the final race on Belle Isle, and now Page turns to the future of the race in the center of downtown Detroit.
The NTT IndyCar Series and other racing series will return to the streets of Downtown Detroit on June 2-4, 2023, with a short course running along the Detroit Riverfront. Last year, the Detroit City Council approved plans for the race to return to downtown Detroit.

It will run along Franklin St., make a left on Rivard, a left on Jefferson Ave. and continue west to Griswold before making a quick left back onto Jefferson, a right on Bates and then a left on Atwater along the Detroit Riverfront.
They’ll make a left on St. Antoine and then a right onto Franklin down the front stretch.
