I think we're going to have to wait a LONG time for the echoes of Las Vegas 2011 to fade enough to even consider a return to the oval.

I do rather wish that the street circuit there had been longer lived, as that 2007 layout was quite good, even with that pesky little curb chicane.

Hopefully, Pocono can get a berth for next year. Another good oval, and I'm just not big on visiting the same track twice in a season in a lot of cases.

I hope it's not the *ahem* Las Vegas Speedway... A street race would be nice!

Leaving aside the politics, Las Vegas oval isn't a bad idea. Chance to wreak vengeance on the demons with a sensible number of cars and the aero philosophy we saw at Texas.

The politics and lingering ill-will will nip this in the bud of course.

It'll never happen...no way they will rip the scab off of that wound just one year later.

The drivers had trepidation about Texas in the wake of the Vegas tragedy, so they will never agree to go back..at least not this soon.

Well CART went back to Fontana, Toronto..etc.IRL, Homestead (Dana). I thought it was acrimony with Vegas management over clean-up among other issues where Randy was lucky not to get battered with a couple of lawsuits.

Vegas is also going to be a tougher nut to crack than Texas anyway. The corner transitions are much less severe than those at Texas. The racing surface is significantly wider. The tri-oval is one big curve, rather than two dog-legs, and then there's the progressive banking as well.

I personally think Eddie will allow them back to Texas this autumn.

Road America has a pretty packed weekend, so IndyCar wouldn't be able to run a full-blown race.

Given how the A1-GP Beijing street circuit and the DTM street circuit turned out and were attended, IndyCar seems lucky to get this event off its calendar or they would have risked another troublesome weekend of Belle Isle dimensions.

However, finding a promoter for a replacement event on such short notice is quite the task.

That will not be happening. It will be a facility rental with the irl promoting and running the event at their own cost.

With all that's been lost with this still-born idea, wherever they'll go it'll be cheap, in the states and not glamorous. That's if they manage to come up with a replacement race at all.

It'll probably be an oval just due to that. It's quick, and ovals require little real planning and logistics to hold.

They have a contract w/Izod and TV for 16 races. It's a must. BTW, there sure were a lot of Izod commercials on the espn coverage of the U.S. Open. I think golf has replaced racing for them. I wouldn't be surprised to see them gone after this year as has been reported.
