The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is taking a different tack to bring fans to the track this May — a road race.
On Thursday, the speedway’s board of directors voted to add a second IndyCar race in May at the historic Brickyard. It’s the first time IndyCar drivers will compete on something other than Indy’s 2.5-mile oval, and it’s the first time they’ll prepare for two races in one season at the speedway. The road race is scheduled for the weekend of May 10-11, two weeks ahead of the series’ marquee event, the Indianapolis 500. Finals details have not yet been worked out.Indianapolis, IndyCar, Road Course

Indianapolis 500 winner Tony Kanaan will not return to KV Racing next season and is finalizing a deal to join Chip Ganassi Racing, The Associated Press has learned.
Two people familiar with Kanaan’s plan said Friday that the Brazilian is nearing a signed contract with Ganassi. They spoke on condition of anonymity because Ganassi has not announced the move.
The 38-year-old Kanaan will join a lineup that includes Indy 500 winners Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon, and Charlie Kimball. Franchitti and Dixon have combined to win six IndyCar titles, and Kanaan won it in 2004.Charlie Kimball, Chip Ganassi Racing, Dario Franchitti, IndyCar, Scott Dixon, Tony Kanaan
Formula One team bosses say the rapidly escalating costs of the sport — set to climb even higher next season — mean there is something “fundamentally wrong” with the sport which must be corrected.
