Portland International Raceway is back on the IndyCar Series schedule in 2018. It means Watkins Glen is out.
In a statement Watkins Glen International said “After two years of partnership, Watkins Glen International and IndyCar have agreed to separate for the 2018 season.”
The statement continues, “This is a decision based purely on an inability to find a date that works for the fans, the series, and the track.”
“Watkins Glen International and IndyCar will continue to maintain a postiive working relationship and will keep the lines of communication open should opportunities become available in the future that work for everyone.”
