|1986-87 USAC Championship Car season|
|USAC Gold Crown Championship|
|Start date||May 24, 1987|
|End date||May 24, 1987|
|National champion||Al Unser, Sr.|
|Indianapolis 500 winner||Al Unser, Sr.|
The schedule was based on a split-calendar, beginning in June 1986 and running through May 1987. Since USAC had dropped out of sanctioning Indy car races outside the Indy 500, the Gold Crown Championship consisted of only one event. The preeminent national championship season was instead sanctioned by CART.
