TIME ON THEIR SIDE: In Indianapolis, Curt Cavin notes “six months remain before the Izod IndyCar Series is scheduled to race at the Twin Ring Motegi circuit in Japan, and officials are in no hurry to decide if the event will have to be canceled.” The track is “located only a few hours from some of Japan's most battered coastal areas, and media accounts have most of the country affected.” IndyCar Commercial Division President Terry Angstadt said, "There is some damage to the track, but they don't think it's very severe. ...
