IMS Expected To Keep MotoGP Event, Drop IMSA Sports Car Race
MotoGP "likely will race" at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in '15, while IMSA's sports cars "will not." Track President Doug Boles said that the "Thursday-Friday format used by sports cars the past three years on NASCAR's Brickyard 400 weekend has not worked for either the sanctioning body or the track." He added that "there are discussions about IMS hosting a standalone sports car event in the future, but there wasn't enough time to flush out details" for '15. Boles "expects IMS will be on the schedule" that Dorna Sports, the MotoGP commercial rights holder, announces in the fall (INDYSTAR.com, 8/10).
