Mr. Newman, speaking candidly with Steelback CEO Frank D'Angelo while shooting a television commercial promoting the event, exclaimed "see you in Canada in July, I'll be there."

The Newman/Haas/Lanigan racing team has long been confirmed for the event with it's two driver team of three-time Champ Car World Series champion Sebastien Bourdais and rookie Graham Rahal, son of racing legend Bobby Rahal, winner of the inaugural Steelback Grand Prix of Toronto in 1986.
