Albert, who again will announce NBA games for the network, called his return "kind of a euphoria a nice, weird feeling." "I'm Just so happy to be back. There will be plenty of national exposures and I'm very satisfied to come home," he said. Albert won't return to his former role as the network's top play-by-play man for NBA games but will complement its existing broadcast teams.

Albert, who agreed to a multi-year deal, will work about 15 regular-season NBA games and the first four weekends of the playoffs. He will also be involved in boxing telecasts during the 2000 Olympics and hockey in the 2002 Winter Games.

From Wire Services A fight over money has driven Championship Auto Racing Teams off the track in Cleveland. The Indy Racing League is taking its place.

CART said Tuesday it has dropped the Cleveland Grand Prix from its 2000 schedule, even as race organizers said their preference was to go with the IRL. Bud Stanner, president of IMG Motorsports, which had directed the Medic Drug-sponsored Cleveland GP since 1993, said a three-year agreement will bring IRL drivers to Burke Lakefront Airport. Organizers plan to transform the current road course at the airport into a new oval configuration about 1.2 miles long, with the first race on July 9, 2000. Cleveland will become a stop on the IRL's circuit. "We received a letter in May from CART stating its board decided not to renew our sanction," Stanner said.

But he said IMG Motorsports is happy to switch to the IRL. "Most importantly, their economic philosophy will allow us to offer even more affordable ticket prices and sponsorship Stanner said. He said IMG Motorsports opened negotiations with CART in July Cleveland GP was run In the rain Sunday on the bumpy 2.1-mile, 10-turn temporary course on the downtown airport's runways and taxiways. IRL team owner A. J.

Foyt, a four-time Indianapolis 500 champion, said the airport's flat surface isn't much of a concern. "We've run a lot of flat ovals over the years. I'm quite sure they'll adapt to it pretty quick. When we get here well set the cars up like we do when we go to Milwaukee. I don't see a problem," he said.

The city of Cleveland also announced a five-year deal with IMG Motorsports on Tuesday to put together a race each summer. Mayor Michael R. White said he is aware of racing fans' concerns that the 4-year-old IRL might not have the same quality of competition as CART. "Clearly IMG and IRL are going to have to show professionally that they can provide the fans in this region a quality package with quality drivers and a quality experience," White said. Now that a deal has been struck between IMG Motorsports and the IRL.

White said the city can move ahead with asking the Federal Aviation Administration for permission to use the airport for racing. Indianapolis Motor Speedway president Tony George, who heads the IRL, said Cleveland will be an Important IRL addition. "We've tried to add races in key markets around the country, and certainly Cleveland is a great racing city," George said. Smart Investors Play the Numbers 1997 about continuing the race beyond 2000. But he said CARTs sanctioning fee Jumped from $1.6 million to more than $2 million, which Stanner said was "way beyond reason for any good business decision to be made." Stanner said the final offer from CART was $1.9 million for a 2000 race in Cleveland.

He said terms of the IRL deal that closed Friday will not be disclosed under a confidentiality agreement. Andrew Craig, CART chairman and chief executive officer, said CART has signed a three-year extension agreement with the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, about 60 miles north of Columbus, through 2003. CART had raced at the temporary course in Cleveland since 1982. "It was CARTs desire to continue racing at Cleveland, and It is unfortunate we could not come to an agreement," Craig said. "The race fans in Cleveland are among the best on our schedule and we look forward to having them Join us at Mid-Ohio."
