The president of Michigan International Speedway is interested in bringing open-wheel racing to the track, and IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard says he'd like to start a dialogue with MIS after the series canceled a race in China later this season.
The race in China on Aug. 19 was officially scrapped this week, leaving Bernard looking for another event for the second half of the season. MIS president Roger Curtis says he's always interested in bringing an open-wheel race to his track, but the business model has to make sense. Curtis was uncertain of IndyCar's interest in MIS, but Bernard tells The Associated Press his business department put a call in to Curtis on Thursday.
Detroit's Belle Isle hosted an IndyCar race earlier this month.
