Welcome Letter

Dear Race Fans,

On behalf of the entire Green Savoree Racing Promotions team, we would like to welcome you to the 2021 Grand Prix of Portland. It’s been a long two years since we were last in the Pacific Northwest and we couldn’t be more excited to get back on Portland International Raceway.

This year, we have two major headliners for this weekend’s festivities. Saturday, the ARCA Menards Series West stops at PIR for the first time to put on a show. This will be can’t-miss entertainment as the future of NASCAR races for the championship. Sunday, be here for the green flag at noon for the NTT INDYCAR SERIES as break-out stars like Alex Palou and Pato O’Ward battle it out with superstars Scott Dixon and Josef Newgarden for the Astor Cup. 

It takes over 200 volunteers to showcase this world-class sport to Portland, Oregon. We thank every single one of them for their hard work and dedication to making this weekend one for the history books. We also like to extend our deep gratitude to our dedicated  partners and sponsors for their support in helping this spectacular weekend possible. Finally, a special thanks to the City of Portland, Portland Parks and Recreation and the Portland International Raceway team for helping us put on a great show.

We hope you have a fantastic weekend, and that you’ll consider joining Green Savoree Racing Promotions next season for the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in March, the Honda Indy Toronto or the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio next summer, or back here for the Grand Prix of Portland in 2022! 

See you at the green flag!

Jerry Jensen

Vice President & General Manager
