Not that it's any surprise since they couldn't get a sponsor to run last season, but it sounds like the IROC series is done for good.  From Jayski:

"IROC up for auction: Looks like no IROC in 2008. The series took 2007 off, in search of a sponsor for the series. None was found and the cars were up for sale and now the cars, engines and equipment will be up for auction Match 6-8, 2008. More info at IROCracing.com.(1-23-2008)"

Very sad.  An era in racing, it appears, is over. Sad

IROC was one of the most interesting racing series when it was run, due to the wide variety of drivers in the identically-prepared cars.  It was clearly a drivers' series.  But IROC was dominated by NASCAR drivers in its last years.
