The Montreal event is supposed to once again support the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix and the other at Toronto where it will be held for the first time as a support race for Izod IndyCar Series.
The details of the schedule are as mentioned here. April 28th to May 1st at the Infineon Raceway, Sonoma, California; May 20th to 22nd at the Laguna Seca, Monterey, California; June 10 till June 12 at Montreal, Quebec, Canada as a support race for the Canadian Grand Prix; July 8th to 10th at Toronto, Ontario, Canada as a support race for the IndyCar Series; July 29th to 30th at Lime Rock Park, Lime Rock, Connecticut; Sept 23rd to 25th at Homestead Miami Speedway, Homestead, Florida.
