Champion : USAflagsmall Jimmy Vasser
Previous: 1995 Next: 1997 (CART)
The 1996 IndyCar season, the eighteenth in the CART era of U.S. open-wheel racing, consisted of 16 races, beginning in Homestead, Florida on March 3 and concluding in Monterey, California on September 8, in which it was marred by the death of Jeff Krosnoff. The PPG Indy Car World Series Drivers' Champion was Jimmy Vasser. Rookie of the Year was Alex Zanardi. This was the first season after the split with the Indy Racing League and the last year that CART licensed the "IndyCar" trademark from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The Indianapolis 500 was replaced in the Series by the U.S. 500, held in Brooklyn, Michigan.
