Verizon P1 Championship

***Note: All points procedures and totals are subject to change prior to the start of the 2017 season.

The Verizon P1 Championship is an honor given to the driver who gets the most out of P1 Award wins throughout the season. After each Verizon IndyCar Series event, the driver points for the top qualifier will be placed into a special points tally. At the end of the season, the driver that best leverages their Verizon P1 Awards – and earns the most P1 Championship points – will earn the trophy.

Verizon P1 Championship points are based on points for the Verizon IndyCar Series Drivers’ Championship, but can only be earned by the P1 winner at each event.
