Indy back on MotoGP schedule in 2014

The Indianapolis Grand Prix will return to the 2014 MotoGP
schedule, and the two sides will begin talking about a long-term
extension.

Speedway officials made the announcement Saturday night. Next
year’s race will be run in mid-August, with a date yet to be
announced.

Both sides could have opted out of the final year of a contract
that expires after next season. But track president Doug Boles said
Saturday night that the two sides reached an agreement to run a
seventh race in Indy in 2014. Boles said negotiations have already
begun on a long-term deal.

There have been questions about the future of MotoGP races at
Indy because crowds have steadily declined since the inaugural race
in 2008.
