Phoenix to move to December?

UPDATE This rumor is upgraded to 'fact' today – see this Hot News item for the full story that the race will run on December 2nd in 2007 and November 23rd in 2008.

09/24/06 Word in the Road America paddock is that to appease ISC in Phoenix there is a chance the Champ Car season finale in Phoenix next year could move from November to early December. While this would space out Champ Car's last three races – one each in October, November and December, it could possibly help the event as it will give the promoter some breathing room between the NASCAR race at PIR. Then the next Phoenix race in 2008 should be run in mid-March and Vegas should become the season finale – an ideal arrangement for Champ Car long-term.
