STICKING WITH 19: IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard said Sunday that the organization has "closed the door on several Midwest venues for 2013, including possible races at Road America, Michigan International Speedway and the discussed street circuit in Chicago." Bernard said that his goal "remains 19 races, and China, which canceled an Aug. 19 event, won't be one of them." Bernard said, "Before we put something on the schedule next time I want a deposit as well as a signed contract." Bernard said that he is "scheduled to meet with Phoenix International Raceway President Bryan Sperber this week." In Indianapolis, Curt Cavin noted Bernard "described recent conversations as 'fantastic'" (INDIANAPOLIS STAR, 7/11).
