KK at Infineon

Quoted from Speed:

Kevin Kalkhoven made in impromptu appearance at Infinion on Sunday morning to talk with Tony George about the possibility of staging doubleheaders in 2007.

"Mario (Andretti) invited me to come to talk with Tony but it wasn't about unification," said Kalkhoven, the co-owner of Champ Car who lives 30 minutes away outside of San Jose.

"We discussed the possibility of running a couple events together but I'm not real optimistic at this point."

IRL founder George had no comment on the meeting, which also included Honda's Robert Clarke, who refused to talk about it.Andretti and Clarke both tried to mend the open wheel split during the past year and the 1969 Indy 500 winner would only say: "I can't really talk about it but I think we're making progress.

"It's believed the events being considered are Long Beach ( Champ Car), St. Petersburg (IRL) and another road race at mid-season.

WickerBill Sez;

As I have said all along a phased deal is a must, could this be the first phase?
