Two ovals this week have expressed a desire to host the Indy Car Series. One of the facilities was built for Indy Cars. They have not been back to Pocono for a long while and the track needs significant upgrades for Indy cars, but that track would be great again. The folks in Loudon REALLY want Indy Cars back at their track and Bruton Smith would like to see the IRL at most of his tracks, including Vegas.
Personally I believe we are ready to return to Charlotte. This demand will likely go unnoticed by the twisty-centric ex-cart folks now running Indy Car, and that is a real shame. Street events remain an utter blight. This is not to imply right turns are bad once in a while; there are many great road courses that are unused by Indy Car.
That situation could change over time as well. The ALMS group is said to be in deep financial trouble (ever noticed how no major road racing series has ever lasted over time in the US?) and many of their teams could be joining or re-joining the ICS. That is refreshing considering the whoring out of rides that occurs in Indy Car. Bobby D left NHL in a huff, and who replaces him is probably dependent on who brings the most money. Conquest is even more blatant; their rotating cast is going to change every few races. That situation needs to be fixed.
Mid-Ohio is always a fun time, and the next event should be compelling.
