Edmonton IndyCar race off schedule over venue row

Edmonton IndyCar race off schedule over venue row

The IndyCar Series stop in Edmonton, Alberta, is off the schedule after the city and event promoter were unable to agree on a location for the race.
The event had been held for the past three years on a temporary City Centre Airport circuit.
Montreal-based Octane took over the race from race organizer Northlands in July. The Edmonton Indy lost $9 million over its first two races in 2008 and 2009.
Octane said in statement on Wednesday that it will look at relocating the 2011 event to another city. IndyCar officials said in a separate statement that they are examining options to replace the event on next season's calendar.
Toronto is the only other Canadian stop on the Indy Racing League's schedule.
