THE FUTURE'S SO BRIGHT: SPEEDTV.com's Robin Miller reported reps from Austin (Texas), Palm Springs (Calif.), Pocono Raceway, Ft. Lauderdale, Richmond, Phoenix, Portland (Ore.) and Elkhart Lake (Wis.) have either met with Bernard about adding a race "or made it known they'd like to discuss the future." Bernard said the group running Circuit of the Americas in Austin "approached us about having a race next year and we're evaluating it." He added he is "optimistic" about a proposed street course race along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in Ft. Lauderdale. Miller noted a road course is being built in Palm Springs "that may or may not be finished in time for 2013." There also have been "rumblings that Chicago might want to put on a street race by Lake Michigan and Australia desires bringing back Indy cars" with Australian natives Will Power and Ryan Briscoe, along with New Zealand native Scott Dixon, being regulars on the circuit (SPEEDTV.com, 3/28).
