LAST INDY AT VEGAS? The track where Dan Wheldon died in a 15-car crash is off the 2012 IndyCar calendar.

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina - The IndyCar Series will not race at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 2012.

Double Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon died in a 15-car collision at that track in the opening laps of October's race.


Track owner Bruton Smith said his company negotiated a deal that would allow IndyCar to buy out its previously announced 2012 race. The series will decide later if it wants to race there in 2013.

IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard had a three-year deal to lease the speedway for the series' season finale.

IndyCar is still investigating the multiple crash and many decisions about its 2012 schedule have been postponed for the results. Among the issues is if the series can race on high-banked ovals such as Las Vegas.
