Tuesday, October 17, 2017

 

Indycar

The 2018 Indycar series is coming to the Portland International Raceway.

The Portland International Raceway event is set for Aug. 31-Sept. 2 on the 1.967-mile permanent road course and will be operated by Green Savoree Racing Promotions.

“INDYCAR couldn’t be more excited to again race in front of one of our strongest fan bases. Portland International Raceway has produced thrilling road racing throughout Indy car history – the 1997 finish still stands as the record for the closest finish on a road or street course – and the timing of our return couldn’t be better given the bold new look our cars will have in 2018. We expect this will be a show fans won’t want to miss,” said Mark Miles, CEO of Hulman & Company, which owns Indycar.

This will mark the first time since 2007 that major open-wheel racing to Portland.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler added that he attended the Indianapolis 500 and is excited to see the sport come back to his city.

“INDYCAR racing brings excitement and thrills to a city and to race spectators. The return of INDYCAR racing to Portland will give us terrific international exposure, a great deal of revenue, new jobs and an exciting experience for race fans,” said Wheeler.

Indycar Racing 2018 Season

Overall, the 2018 Indycar season will consist of 17 races starting in St. Petersburg on March 11.

The season wraps up on September 16 at Sonoma Raceway.

“The strength and consistency of the Verizon IndyCar Series’ 2018 schedule is something all of us should be proud of. We’re also looking forward to continuing the upward trend of the series through the introduction of the universal aero kits, which testing has shown to be an exciting product,” said Miles.
