Satellite and streaming radio service SiriusXM will offer more than a dozen live broadcasts of IndyCar Series races this year.

The company’s coverage of IndyCar started on Sunday with the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, and will also include a live broadcast of the 107th running of the Indianapolis 500 on May 28.

Additionally, SiriusXM’s exclusive IndyCar show, “Brick by Brick,” will air Wednesdays on NBC Sports Audio (Channel 85), starting at 6 p.m. Eastern Time, with replays available through the SiriusXM app.

The satellite radio service is co-sponsoring two cars that will appear at various IndyCar Series events: The Number 6 car driven by Helio Castroneves and the Number 60 car driven by Simon Pagenaud. The cars will appear at all 16 IndyCar races covered by SiriusXM during the IndyCar Series this year.
