Despite Good Show, IndyCar Might Leave Chicagoland
JOLIET, Ill. (AP) -- The IndyCar series put on another strong race at Chicagoland Speedway, with the leaders spending much of Saturday night zigzagging in traffic while inches apart at speeds of more than 200 mph.

But when Dario Franchitti crossed the finish line first, it might have marked the last time IndyCar runs at one of its most entertaining venues for the foreseeable future. When the series' 2011 schedule comes out, Chicagoland might not be on it -- and the Milwaukee Mile might take its place.

Driver Dan Wheldon says it would be a shame for the series to leave Chicagoland, because the track puts on such a good show for the fans.
