Catalyst 317 is set to return as the title sponsor of the 2022 Indy Elite Series Triple Crown. The Catalyst 317 Triple Crown will consist of three races.
Any IES driver who can win all 3 races of the Triple Crown would win a cash bonus. In 2021, the Catalyst 317 Triple Crown saw three unique winners for each race. Drivers will hope to make history in 2022 as the first ever triple crown winner.
Each Catalyst 317 Triple Crown race in 2022 will have its own unique story. Leg one on January 2nd will be from the historic Michigan International Speedway. The race will be titled the Catalyst 317 at MIS as the race will be 317 miles in length!
This will be the fourth time that the IES has visited the famed two mile oval. It has seen three unique winners including former series champions Adam Blocker and Philip Kraus.
Leg two of the Catalyst 317 Triple Crown will take place at Texas Motor Speedway on March 13th. This race will be titled The Texas 250 Presented by Catalyst 317. This will be the 6th time that the IES has visited TMS. Oval specialist Christopher Demeritt has owned the venue by winning there in three out of five races.
Finally on April 24th, the 7th Annual Indianapolis 500 Presented by Catalyst 317 will round out the 2022 season and Triple Crown. The crown jewel of every Indy Elite Season.
33 drivers will line up to try and become an Indy 500 champion. In the first six iterations of this historic race, the IES has yet to see a two time champion. Will this be the year? Or will we crown our 7th Indy 500 winner?!?
“It is exciting to have Catalyst 317 back as the sponsor of the Indy Elite Series Triple Crown,” exclaimed driver Tanner Watkins.
Watkins earned a victory at the Indy Elite Series’ Indianapolis 500 event on April 11 of this past season.
“Their investment in sim racing doesn’t go unnoticed, and the work Catalyst 317 does in promoting the NTT INDYCAR SERIES and their clients is on the cutting edge of motorsports creative and PR. The Indy Elite Series is fortunate to be associated with a brand such as theirs.”
