Idaho Could Host Grand Prix Style Races, Officials Mulling it Over

Benito Baeza

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Southwest Idaho officials want to slow things down a bit and get more information before considering a plan to hold a three-day Indy Racing League event where cars would zoom around Meridian at 200 mph.

Organizer Warren Busse of Boise told Ada County Highway District commissioners Wednesday that the annual event called the Meridian Grand Prix could start by the summer of 2014. But Busse faces some speed bumps. He needs to land sponsors and get approval from the Indy Racing League before he can make a formal proposal.

The Idaho Statesman reports officials with Meridian and Ada County would have to approve the plan that would close Meridian city streets for up to three days. Busse says the race would draw tens of thousands of fans.
