Late Tuesday night, the Texas Motor Speedway announced that the IZOD IndyCar Series will run back-to-back races over the June 9-11 weekend. At a Dallas, Texas event with guests Randy Bernard and Helio Castroneves, TMS President Eddie Gossage announced the 'Firestone Two Step' consisting of two 275 kilometer (171 mile/114 lap) races on the same day.
