Californian CART finale is cancelled

The final round of the CART series, scheduled for the California Speedway this weekend has been cancelled because of the fires raging in the hills around the track. CART and the race organizers looked at possible replacement dates but concluded that none were practical.

This is only the second time in the history of CART that a race has been cancelled, the other being in April 2001 when the race at Texas was called off because the drivers were complaining that it was impossible to race without getting dizzy.
