INDYCAR Not Returning To LV Speedway In 2012

INDYCAR announced late Thursday that the series will not be returning to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 2012, citing a need for 'considerable' testing of the new DW12 chassis prior to returning to the facility.

"We feel we need to give our technical team ample time to conduct thorough testing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, once we complete our ongoing investigation into the 15-car accident during the Oct. 16 race at the track," said INDYCAR, CEO, Randy Bernard.

The complete 2012 schedule along with the future of all 1.5 mile ovals is yet to be announced.
