Historical Note

Portland International Raceway is located on the site of the WWII city of Vanport, which was flooded out in 1948 and abandoned. The City of Portland purchased the site in 1960; the roads of the defunct city were then used for the first "Rose Cup Races" in June, 1961.

Drag racing at PIR started in 1965; the SCCA Trans-Am series came to PIR in 1972. IMSA brought their GTP series to Portland in 1978, and CART (now ChampCar) came in 1984.

The "Festival Turns" were added a couple of years ago in the main straight; previously the track had been 1.915 miles with 9 turns. Most sanctioning bodies (other than the drag racers) use the track with the new chicane. For 2005, the gravel traps around the festival turns have been paved over.
