Texas Announcement Coming Tuesday

Eddie Gossage is at it again.  Known as one of the best, if not the best track President in the sport, Gossage will be at the center of a major press conference on Tuesday.  Other attendees at the House of Blues announcement location in Dallas, Texas will be IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard and driver Helio Castroneves as well as NASCAR CEO Brian France and driver Tony Stewart.  The world famous Goo Goo Dolls are also rumored to be playing at the event.

Say, for example, the announcement involves a a double header between the two Series. And say the event is scheduled before the 2011 Indianapolis 500. It sure would give a perfect opportunity for interested Indy 500/Coke 600 participants to get seat time in the other chassis....

UPDATE: According to SI.com writer Brant James, the IZOD IndyCar Series portion of the announcement will be 'dual same-day races'
