IndyCar fans, here's some news that you may not want to hear. Due to scheduling conflicts, the Grand Prix of Baltimore is canceled for 2014 and 2015, the Baltimore Business Journal reports. While the future of the racing event has previously been jeopardized by financial disputes between the city and race organizers, this time finances were not the problem. In fact, totals for sponsorship dollars and the number of attendees both increased for the 2013 race, which was held over Labor Day weekend.

Partly due to the race's timing over a holiday weekend, organizers simply couldn't find available dates at the busy Inner Harbor venue where the race is held. The Baltimore Business Journal quotes Visit Baltimore CEO Tom Noonan as saying, "We just don't have those dates in 2014 and 2015 for the Grand Prix. It just became this puzzle that we couldn't fit an opening together." As for the future of the event, Noonan noted that the race may return in 2016, but "he can't predict what will happen 2-3 years from now in terms of finding another date."
