Dodger Grand Prix

I had to read it twice just to make sure this was real, but evidently the ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers are discussing hosting an IRL road race outside Dodger Stadium. What? Most likely nothing will come of this, but the last sentence of the article is intriguing.

Both sides said a race could be held again at the two-mile oval in Fontana, but Griffin said the IRL is leaning more toward a street race in L.A.

Considering that Champ Car already has the Long Beach Grand Prix, this would have to be considered the IRL's leverage against or outright denial of recent continued ongoing indefinite talks about a possible IRL and Champ Car merger.

Note that the Dodger ownership has recently considered hosting the National Football League, so insert your favorite prostitution joke here.
