PORTLAND, Ore. (December 12, 2018) - The Grand Prix of Portland returns to Portland International Raceway (PIR), August 30-September 1, 2019. Public sales for all 3-Day tickets will begin at 10 a.m. PT tomorrow (Thursday, December 13) at or by calling 1-888-476-4479.

Returning to the Pacific Northwest for the second consecutive year, the Grand Prix of Portland is Round 16 on the 2019 IndyCar Series’ 17-event schedule. The on track action for IndyCar’s stars and cars will be at high intensity during this motorsports festival as the championship battle enters its closing stages.

Grandstand and General Admission prices remain unchanged from the 2018 event. Prices are $85 for Bronze 3-Day Grandstand seating, $95 for Silver, and $165 for Gold which includes a Paddock Pass. The pricing varies based on the trackside location of the grandstand. General Admission for the entire three-day weekend is $60, and children 12 and under are admitted free to the event and also the IndyCar Paddock with a ticketed adult providing an exceptional family value. Single-day tickets will be released for sale in late June.

"Our preparations are fully underway with PIR, the City of Portland and our partners for 2019. If you didn’t make it last year, it’s an all-around festival experience that all ages can enjoy with activities all weekend on and off the track,” said Jerry Jensen, vice president and general manager of Grand Prix of Portland. “Now is the time to act to secure the best seats. Grand Prix of Portland tickets also make great gifts which will certainly deliver excitement this holiday season.”

Additional items now on sale to enhance the festival-goer experience are the Champions Club and Pit and IndyCar Paddock Passes. For a limited time and in limited quantities, the Champions Club membership includes a Paddock Pass and offers premium access and exclusive benefits. Pit Passes provide the closest fan access to the action during practice and qualifying sessions. Paddock Passes offer entry to “the locker room of motorsports” to get up close to the IndyCar drivers, cars and teams in the garage area. 3-Day Broadacre Parking is available for $50. RV Club spaces, which include event General Admission and Paddock Passes, are available for $1,200 and anticipated to sell out again.

Portland International Raceway (PIR) is the home of the Grand Prix of Portland. PIR is a 1.964-mile, 12-turn permanent road course owned by the City of Portland and operated under the Portland Parks and Recreation. Opened in 1960 to host sports car and drag racing, the 268-acre property hosts over 550 events annually including automotive and motorcycle road racing, motocross, cruise-ins and other special events including the Rose Cup Races. PIR has been the site of many memorable Indy car races. Al Unser Jr. won the inaugural one in 1984, and the IndyCar Series returned in 2018 after an 11-year absence with Takuma Sato the winner. The Father’s Day race of 1986 featured Mario Andretti victorious over his son Michael on the last lap by less than a second. The closest three-way road racing finish in Indy car history took place at PIR in 1997 when the top three were covered by just 0.055 of a second. The Grand Prix of Portland is owned and operated by Green Savoree Racing Promotions, which also promotes three additional IndyCar races, Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg (March 8-10, 2019), Honda Indy Toronto (July 12-14, 2019) and The Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio (July 26-28, 2019).
