IndyCar has announced the cancellation of its Toronto street race for the second year in a row.
Penske Entertainment Corporation president and CEO Mark Miles said the race, which was first held in 1986, “is a hallmark of our summer schedule” and the series intends to return next year.
“To have that void for a second straight year is heartbreaking,” said Miles. “We deeply miss our fans there and urge them to remain safe during these unprecedented times.
“IndyCar looks forward to a high-powered return in 2022 and for years to come.”
The series indicated it will consider arranging a replacement event for the race. The fifth round of the championship will take place at the Indianapolis road course this weekend.
