According to Cycle News, the date is to be expected to be September 14, 2008. According to the Indianapolis Star, Motorcycle racing will return to Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2008, track president Joie Chitwood confirmed today.

An adjustment to the 2.66-mile circuit is also expected to be detailed at that time.
