On Thursday, it was announced that INDYCAR would not return to Watkins Glen.
INDYCAR CEO, Mark Miles, recently addressed the schedule change and how the race on Labor Day weekend will now be moved to Portland. Two years ago, WGI secured INDYCAR for the first time since 2010. After a tough draw for fans on the holiday weekend, both the circuit and Watkins Glen International parted ways but have left the door open for the future.
In an interview provided to 18 Sports by INDYCAR public relations, you will hear Miles describe why Portland could be a much better fit on Labor Day weekend. WGI is hopeful for the future, and, if the circuit does come back, it will be on a mutually beneficial weekend.
