Two For The Price Of One? IndyCar Considering Doubleheader At Iowa Speedway

MILES TO GO: In Milwaukee, Dave Kallmann reported AB Promotions CEO Chris McGrath, whose company organized the Izod IndyCar Series race at the Milwaukee Mile on June 19, “wouldn’t discuss details of the event but did characterize losses as ‘significant.’” AB leased the track from the Wisconsin State Fair Park and “did not meet May deadlines for picking up its options for 2012 with the fair or IndyCar.” AB has “since signed a letter of intent, stating it would like to return for 2012,” but Kallmann noted that was apparently "little more than a procedural move; the most important factor is IndyCar also wanting to be back.” IndyCar has expressed a “strong desire” to return to Chicagoland Speedway, and has also shown “some interest” in a race at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisc.
