Circuit of the Americas

In addition to WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, which was previously announced, the 2019 IndyCar Series schedule released Tuesday includes a stop in Austin, Texas, at Circuit of the Americas. It’s the first time INDYCAR will race at the track that also hosts Formula One, MotoGP and the Pirelli World Challenge.

While the schedule was mostly consistent with the 2018 slate, fans swooned over the move to the COTA facility that ranks among the world’s finest. Can you blame them?
