Reports in the US on Monday say that IndyCar Series officials were in talks with Chicago land Speedway but the idea was shelved.

The report went in to say that a deal could be reached for the future.

Taking to Twitter about the prospect of Chicago, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing’s Graham Rahal tweeted:

This would have been awesome and nothing but HUGE win for fans of all racing. @indycar on Saturday night and @NASCAR on Sunday would have been epic to say the least. More of this please!
