AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Phoenix International Raceway would welcome IndyCar back, but the track president doesn't believe those who run the series have much interest in a return.
Raceway President Bryan Sperber says he's been clear with IndyCar on how the financial arrangement would have to be structured for open wheel racing to run again at the popular oval. Sperber, however, indicated before Sunday's NASCAR race that IndyCar officials have not pursued an event for their schedule.
PIR hosted IndyCar races from 1996 through 2005, and USAC and CART ran at the track from 1964 to 1995. IndyCar has six ovals on the 2014 schedule, which includes 18 events between March and August.
