09/28/12 A press conference has been called for Monday morning at Pocono International Raceway at which time it is expected to be announced that the IZOD IndyCar Series is returning to the track in 2013.

The press conference will feature Pocono Raceway president Brandon Igdalsky, IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard, 1969 Indianapolis 500 winner Mario Andretti and Ed Carpenter, the winner of the 2012 IndyCar Series season finale.

09/23/12 Edmonton, which has been cancelled for lack of a title sponsor two years running,  has been removed from the schedule below bringing it down to 19 races.  In this Twitter interview, Michael Andretti admits to being the promoter of the Ft. Lauderdale race if it happens.  He says he is still working on it, so that might be added in.

09/19/12 An article by Autoweek said Pocono is expected to be on the 2013 IndyCar schedule and that the race would be held either the weekend before or after the July 4 holiday.  See assumed schedule below.

09/15/12 At Fontana IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard all but confirmed that Pocono (Pa.) Raceway and a street race in Providence, R.I., will be on the 2013 schedule to be announced by Oct. 1.  See updated assumed schedule below - it shows 20 races so one of them probably will not happen.
