Port­land back on IndyCar sched­ule

The Times-Tribune - - Sports -

Port­land In­ter­na­tional Race­way re­turns to the IndyCar Se­ries sched­ule in 2018.

The Sept. 2 race on the 1.967-mile per­ma­nent road course will be IndyCar’s first trip to the Ore­gon track since races were held from 1984-2007 un­der CART and Champ Car sanc­tion.

Port­land re­places Watkins Glen, New York, on the sched­ule.

There were no other ma­jor changes on the 17-race sched­ule as IndyCar sought sta­bil­ity in as­sem­bling its 2018 cal­en­dar. The race at Phoenix is re­turn­ing to the first week­end in April. The race had moved this year to avoid con­flict­ing with the NCAA men’s bas­ket­ball Fi­nal Four tak­ing place in nearby Glen­dale, Ari­zona.

Po­cono Race­way in Long Pond again will host an IndyCar race Aug. 19.
