IndyCar Racing Will Not Return to Watkins Glen in 2018
There will be no IndyCar race at Watkins Glen next year.
In an announcement on their Twitter feed, Watkins Glen International said that scheduling issues are to blame for Indy Car racing's disappearance from the upstate New York road racing track.
The Labor Day weekend race will now be held in Portland. Curiously, Watkins Glen released their 2018 schedule which shows no race or conflict slated for the same weekend.
Here is the official statement from Watkins Glen:
After two years of partnership, Watkins Glen International and IndyCar have agreed to separate for the 2018 season. 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 positive working relationship and will keep the lines of communication open should opportunities become available in the future that work for everyone.
