UPDATE: Here is a story on the cancellation in the Calgary Herald.

NOTABLE: There is a new 2.7 km road course more than halfway completed on the property at Castrol Raceway, adjacent to the Edmonton International Airport. The owner of that property, Rob Reeves, recently told Inside Track that he had no plans to host the Edmonton Indy, but that he would be interested in talking with the people at NASCAR (re: the Canadian Tire Series) and the Canadian Superbike Series, to name a few. Watch InsideTrackNews.com for an interview with Reeves in the coming days. Castrol Raceway already hosts several major motorsports events, including the IHRA drag races and the World of Outlaws (on its dirt oval).
