http://sports.espn.go.com/rpm/news/story?seriesId=1&id=3253353Officials from the Indy Racing League and Champ Car World Series struck a preliminary agreement Tuesday to fold elements of the Champ Car World Series into the IRL IndyCar Series.
An official announcement is expected Thursday. SPEEDtv.com first reported the agreement Tuesday afternoon.
Its about time. American open wheel racing has been a disgrace since the split. The Indy 500 isn't even the biggest race in the U.S. on the day its held. Only a united open wheel league with a well-intended, long-term campaign of quality racing could possibly bring back any prestige, IMO.
