Indy Mile cancelled

This just in from the AMA...

AMA Pro Racing has been informed by Indy Mile officials that the tragic events of August 13 -- in which an overhead stage-rigging structure collapsed in high winds, killing five and injuring dozens -- has resulted in the cancellation of Round 15 on the AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance Flat Track calendar.

"A series of investigations into the causes of the accident have commenced," stated the promoters' release. "The examination of the wreckage is expected to continue for an indefinite period of time. This has forced the closing of the Grandstand and one-mile dirt track to events until the investigation is completed and the debris is removed."

I am totally bummed about this. Not only because of the tragedy to my city, my beloved state and my friends who were there, but also because we have been denied a chance to regain what was lost. I was hoping the Indy Mile would be a chance to shake off the bad juju of August 13th.
