- The series has been compacted to just 5 months. This is so that the season is finished before the NFL season starts. Clashes were damaging TV ratings.
- The calendar has been reduced from 19 to 18 races. The street circuits in Sao Paulo and Baltimore have been dropped whilst a race on the Indianapolis road course has been added.
- The three double header races in Detroit, Toronto and Houston will remain.
- Several races have been increased in length. Texas will increase from 550 to 600 Kilometres. Poconco goes from 400 to 500 miles. Iowa increases to 300 miles from 250.
- The triple crown prize for the 3 superspeedways (ovals with a lap length of at least 2 miles) remains. If a driver wins Indy, Pocono and Fontana they receive a $1M bonus. If a driver wins 2 out of the 3 they will get $250,000.
