ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) –The IndyCar series won’t return to ISM Raceway in 2019, ending a three-year run at the track in the Phoenix suburbs.

IndyCar said attendance at the oval in Avondale, Arizona, was disappointing despite “considerable investment” by the open-wheel series and track organizers.

The move was announced Friday in a joint statement from IndyCar and the track.

IndyCar says track president Bryan Sperber and his team were good partners with the series and that it hoped to return when “conditions are right for both parties.”
