BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - IndyCar racing is coming to NASCAR
The Indy Racing League and promoters announced a deal Monday
that will bring the open-wheeled cars to the 2.38-mile, 17-turn
Barber Motorsports Park track starting in April 2010.
Sports promoter Gene Hallman says the event April 9-11 will be
the only IndyCar Series race in the Deep South.
More than 20,000 people turned out for IndyCar testing in March
at the Barber track, which is about 40 miles west of the Talladega
Superspeedway. Officials estimated the inaugural Indy Grand Prix of
Alabama could attract as many as 100,000 spectators.
