RISING PHOENIX? Phoenix Int'l Raceway President Bryan Sperber on Friday said that he would “welcome conversations with IndyCar about a return to the desert.” PIR hosted IndyCar events from '96-'05, but Sperber said that it is “too late for Phoenix to be added to the 2012 IndyCar schedule.” Sperber: "I think 2013 is the earliest we could entertain anything." He added that he also “wants to make sure his track is compatible with the new IndyCar” (AP, 12/9).
