After a four-year layoff Formula 1 is back in Austin, Texas and ready to give this country another chance at hosting a race. Come Sunday when the United States Grand Prix is run in this cosmopolitan town that is home to both the state’s capital and the University of Texas fans worldwide might have a different view of Austin.  

It may come as a surprise to some but Formula 1 racing in the United States has a rich and storied history. Back in 1959 the first F1 race was held in this country at Sebring. Then a year later it was Riverside Raceway in California that had the honor.

From 1961 through 1980 the home of the United States Grand Prix was Watkins Glen and in 1976 through 1983 the series had a second race in the U.S. as they ran on the streets of Long Beach where it stayed until 1983. Las Vegas, Detroit, Dallas and Phoenix all took their turns at hosting the F1 series before they left the U.S. in 1992.

F1 did return in 2000 and it was the Indianapolis Motor Speedway that was home to the race until the series again passed by the U.S. after the 2007 race.   

Texas is ready for the race and so is Speed.
