Moto GP at Indy?

Is this true, is there really going to be 2 GP races in the states next year? Does anyone know any facts about this?

Nicky mentioned on Wind Tunnel that if Indy wants it they will get it. That would be a great addition because F1 is already a blast there.

Looks like a good bet and Chris Carr is trying to resurrect the Indy Mile flat track race on that weekend as well.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

And Nick, Cycle World's David Edwards basically confirmed it as a sure thing in the last issue.
