UPDATE: IndyCar finds replacement for canceled Boston race

May 13, 2016

IndyCar will return to the road course at Watkins Glen International in New York on Labor Day weekend as the replacement race for a canceled event in Boston.

The Watkins Glen race will be held Sept. 4, the same day Boston had been scheduled.

The race will be the 15th event on the 16-race schedule. Watkins Glen joins Phoenix International Raceway and Road America in venues that returned to IndyCar this season.

Boston was scheduled to host a race on the city's streets Sept. 4, and IndyCar had touted the weekend as an opportunity to showcase its event in front of a new audience that would include many college students. But late last month, organizers called off the race and said their relationship with city officials was "untenable."
