Schedule should be released today. Unfortunately, it sounds like Mexico will not be added for 2018, but is still a possibility for 2019. Other than that, Portland will replace Watkins Glen. Hopefully that event will be given time to grow, and it can build date equity.

As far as adding venues to the series, how hard would it be to get Watkins Glen back? Would a combo weekend with IMSA for the 6 hours be possible? It would add luster to the weekend that could make a ticket more worthwhile for people 2+ hours away in Buffalo, and 4+ hours away in New York City, Philly, and the like.

And what about adding tracks like Miami and Richmond? They put on good shows, and would be the "type" of oval I'd like back on the calendar. They'd also make for venues that could play host to the championship weekend, even if the season extends later into the fall.
