GOING BACK FOR SECONDS: SPEEDTV.com reported IndyCar "received written commitment April 28 from the governor of the state of Rio Grande do Sul and the mayor of Porto Alegre of their intention to play host" to a second annual race in Brazil. IndyCar Commercial Division President Terry Angstadt said, "What’s exciting to us is this three-country platform -- to have a race in a section of Brazil with close proximity to Argentina and Uruguay. It’s a very business-friendly market so it’s perfect for IndyCar" (SPEEDTV.com, 4/30).
