SPEEDtv.com has learned that the Indy Racing League and Champ Car have officially, and mercifully, agreed to become one entity. A press conference could come as early as Wednesday if Kevin Kalkhoven is back from England in time.
Now that open wheel racing in the United States is dead the Champ Car World Series and the IRL have gotten back together. What a disaster this was, all because some spoiled brat wanted his way. There wasn’t much left of Champ Car anyway but they had some things still worth saving and I hope they make their way into the IRL; great looking cars, turbo charged engines and races in Long Beach, Mexico City, Cleveland and some great Canadian races. Those are well worth keeping and if the IRL wants to suceed then they need to look at some of these items.
