Due to the events of September 11, 2001, the Indy Racing Northern Light Series event scheduled for Sunday, September 16 has been postponed to October 6. Bradley Motorsports is in support of this and feels that this was the only choice in light of the horrific and cowardly acts of terrorism on Tuesday.

"I am certainly disappointed we won't be racing but, in the big sense of the things I would be more disappointed if we had," commented Buzz Calkins. "With all that has happened it is simply not the right thing to do. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those lost in New York and Washington D.C., those who are still missing and with those heroes who are helping in the rescue process. That is where our focus should be, not on racing. We'll come back and race when the time is right. This was not the right time."
