Formula One in the U.S.
A timeline of F1's tracks across America
The U.S. has hosted Formula One races 51 times over 52 years in the sport's 60-year existence, including a 20-year run at Watkins Glen International and eight years each in Long Beach and Indianapolis. At its height in 1982, there were three U.S. events on the calendar. If the Austin plan comes to fruition, it would be the second Grand Prix in Texas, after a one-year stop in Dallas (1984). While there has not been a U.S. date since 2007, both the Indianapolis Brickyard and the Monticello Motor Club were negotiating to become the new hosts when Austin was unexpectedly selected.
