The Toronto round scheduled in July was canceled yesterday.  No surprise.

April 18         Barber Motorsports Park
April 25         Streets of St. Petersburg
May 1            Texas Motor Speedway Race 1
May 2            Texas Motor Speedway Race 2
May 15           Indianapolis Motor Speedway (Road Course)
May 30           The 105th Indianapolis 500
June 12          Raceway at Belle Isle Park Race 1
June 13          Raceway at Belle Isle Park Race 2
June 20          Road America
July 4           Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course
August 8         Streets of Nashville

August 21        World Wide Technology Raceway
September 12     Portland International Raceway

I have it on fairly decent authority that the canceled Toronto race will be run at Mid-Ohio as the season closer in October.  To be continued...

What is with the multiple trips to Indianapolis...

Lack of alternative tracks or just the owners like running their own track?

Neither

The road course race before the 500 is just there to try and restore a “full month of May” tradition

The August event is a double header with NASCAR and the Brickyard 400…. The NASCAR race was lagging and they think a dual bill with indycars will raise interest

I think the only Indycar race at IMS should be the 500
