I like that a lot, already weíre seeing hints of a 2014 calendar will Road Atlanta joining the schedule.

Iím intrigued to see the new Kansas course, if it produces a good race this year, it should be considered for 2014. Homestead is a curious circuit, it only ever gets close to full when NASCAR arrived, and itís a ghost town for anything else. Iím glad itís been ditched.

No Montreal is a real shame; the circuit just clicks for four-wheeled racing. It might be too late, but with Grand Am giving up its Montreal date; could IndyCar race there on Sunday? Nationwide is on Saturday, it would be an ideal place to race the DW12Ö

Similarly with Road America, now that Grand Am has switched dates to August, could that leave space for IndyCar in June? These are opportunities to consider for 2014 if they donít happen this year.

Any worries that NASCAR might throttle a unified Grand-Am schedule are not being proven with this schedule. It looks like Grand Am is realigning itself with ALMS, with some of Grand Amís less popular events being ditched and a quality schedule is a result.

The Road America double header looks very tasty to say the least.

I doubt Indycar will go to Montreal but it would be good if they did.

The reason why I was thinking that IndyCar could race at Montreal is because NASCAR Nationwide will race on the Saturday, leaving a spare day for IndyCar on Sunday. Since Champ Car left Montreal, both weekends have been full with F1 NASCAR/Grand Am. Not anymoreÖ
