DETROIT, Sept. 28 (UPI) -- Detroit is trying to get IndyCar racing back to the city and is reportedly eyeing a spot on the circuit's calendar next September.

The Detroit News reported Thursday that, with Birmingham businessman Roger Penske leading the bid, Detroit officials expected to hear Friday the city could be among those on next year's 17-race Indy Racing League's schedule.

Penske told the newspaper the non-profit downtown Detroit Partnership would be the race promoter.

The News said the city was looking at next Sept. 2 for IndyCar racing to return to Detroit.

Detroit had been a regular stop for the tour from 1992 through 2001
