One of the NASCAR Nationwide Series most successful races will change venues next season.
Officials of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway have called a July 6th press conference at which time it is expected an announcement will be made to bring NASCAR's number two division to the historic track in 2012.
After competing in nearby Clermont, Indiana's Lucas Oil Raceway since 1982 the Nationwide division will join the Rolex Grand Am Series as part of a tripleheader schedule at IMS anchored by the Sprint Cup Series Brickyard 400.
Despite being one of the most popular and competitive races on the Nationwide calendar, the decision to bring the circuit to IMS will end a nearly thirty year tradition.
The Grand-Am Series sports cars will compete on the IMS road course Friday afternoon with the Nationwide Series joining Sprint Cup qualifying on the Saturday schedule.
