Officials from IndyCar have announced the NTT IndyCar Series schedule for this year.
The 2021 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach has been rescheduled for Sunday, September 26, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Long Beach is one of the foundational and longest-running events on the schedule.
Additionally, a three-race, three-weekend west coast swing will complete the championship. Beginning at Portland International Raceway on Sunday, September 12, the homestretch continues at, what would be the finale under normal conditions, WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca on Sunday, September 19, before finishing on the streets of Long Beach.
“It is important to have Long Beach rescheduled to continue the history and tradition for one of the series’ hallmark events in one of the nation’s premier media markets,” Penske Entertainment Corp. President and CEO Mark Miles said. “Further, it’s a tremendous opportunity to wrap up the season with three-straight iconic venues for what we believe will be our most exciting season yet. As we did during the 2020 season, we will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and maintain flexibility across our schedule.”
