The Indy Racing League will switch its race at Kansas Speedway from July to late April next year as a buildup to the start of practice for the Indianapolis 500.

The July slot vacated by Kansas instead will be used for a road race at Watkins Glen, and a feasibility test eventually could produce an IRL race at Daytona International Speedway, NASCAR's most famous track.

The earlier date for Kansas would provide cooler weather and a more comfortable atmosphere for fans, 70 percent of whom had voiced support for the switch, said track president Jeff Boerger. Having a race the July 4 holiday week at Watkins Glen, meanwhile, would enhance the upstate New York area's attractiveness to summertime tourists, said president Craig Rust.

Barnhart said moving the Kansas race to one week before the Indianapolis Motor Speedway opens for practice would fill a seven-week gap in which the only race the past two years has been in Japan.

"The race at Twin Ring Motegi is also an important event for us because of our partners at Honda and Firestone," he said. "But it is difficult to get the mainstream media to follow you when you're on the other side of the planet, and we kind of disappear off the radar screen for the 10 or 12 days that we're over on the other side.

"It certainly gets us back into the mainstream media and the public eye the week before practice opens for the Indianapolis 500."
