- Indy is a big (2.5 miles) flat oval with sharp turns and long, narrow straights. The closest thing to it is Pocono, with it’s three long straight-a-ways and relatively flat corners. You might also check out how your drivers perform at New Hampshire, although not everyone agrees with that. NHMS is flat one miler with squared off corners too. Good luck.
