Edmonton NCATS???
« on: March 13, 2008, 07:59:53 PM »
Greg is reporting this on Inside Track -
"As you know, the IndyCar race in Edmonton will not take place on the originally scheduled Champ Car weekend due to a conflict with the IRL race at Mid-Ohio. According to a source, the new date for the Edmonton IndyCar race will be Saturday, July 26, on the weekend immediately after the original Champ Car date.
The Brickyard 400 is taking place on Sunday, July 27... hence the reason why the Edmonton IRL race will be on the Saturday and not the Sunday.
And where does this leave the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series race? Most likely as the main event on Sunday, July 27 in Edmonton.... leaving precious little time for the teams to make their way to Montreal for the NASCAR Nationwide Series event the next weekend.
Making matters even more interesting, if the NCATS race is on Sunday, it will likely be upwards of 70 laps. The event was 32 laps in '07."

It would be a struggle for the teams to race 70 laps in Edmonton on Sunday then trek back East for a race in Montreal on Saturday both on road courses.
On the other hand, to headline Edmonton on Sunday, might be worth it!
Anyone with other info?

so vernon on the 12th and edmonton on the 27th, how many teams would make the trip twice or stay in the west for two weeks? maybe they will move the vernon date to the 19th.
