REPORTS CONFIRMED BY NSS MONDAY

GLADEVILLE — It’s official. The IndyCar Series is pulling out of Middle Tennessee.
The IndyCar Series made it official Monday morning that Nashville’s July 2009 date would be going to Toronto for a street race. The Canadian city had been without an open wheel date during the 2008 series due to the merger of the IRL and the ChampCar Series.
"We’re disappointed for all of the fans and sponsors of open wheel racing in middle Tennessee," said Cliff Hawks, Vice President and General Manager of Nashville Superspeedway.
"Regrettably, the IRL has chosen to structure their sanction fees at such a level that we had no choice but to re-evaluate whether they fit into our plan. Regardless, we believe the IRL had no further interest in the middle Tennessee market. We are very grateful to Firestone and their support of the Firestone Indy 200 for the past seven years," Hawks said.
