Officials at ISM Raceway in Phoenix have confirmed that the Desert Diamond West Valley Casino Phoenix Grand Prix will not be on the Verizon IndyCar Series schedule in 2019.
A statement released by ISM Raceway president Bryan R Sperber said:
We have enjoyed having INDYCAR at our venue for the full three years of our agreement. The series officials and teams have been tremendous partners.
“INDYCAR will not be on our schedule in 2019, we’re currently taking a pause to review schedule options for the future. INDYCAR is currently discussing with International Speedway Corporation (ISC) other potential venues and opportunities.
“We’d like INDYCAR to be on our calendar in the coming years, and we will work with INDYCAR to find a date that will help deliver a successful event.
The series confirmed that they are looking at other exciting venues for the 2019 season and the news that ISM Raceway will not be on the calendar next season comes as the series prepares for tomorrow’s Kohler Grand Prix at Road America.
