FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Michael Andretti and Al Unser Jr. couldn't be lured to race in Texas.

Texas Motor Speedway officials were hoping they could get Andretti and Unser, who both came out of retirement to race in the Indianapolis 500 last weekend, to drive in their IndyCar Series race June 10. But teams for both drivers turned down a sponsorship offer, track president Eddie Gossage said Wednesday.

"We would have very much liked to have both of these Indy car legends run here, but we understand and respect their decision," Gossage said.
