Dear Jill, Until the merger talks are done between Champ Car and the IRL, we doubt you will see any announcements for new races. Merging the two schedules together will already make the schedule too large, so adding new races will be difficult. The good news is that they should be able to drop the dead wood races and end up with a 20 to 22 race schedule that contains only the profitable and popular venues. Mark C.
