Texas Motor Speedway officials and the Verizon IndyCar Series announced on Thursday that they have reached an agreement that will see the series continuing to race at the oval for at least the next four years.
The news also comes as DXC Technology announced that they will return as entitlement sponsor to the race which will take place on June 8 2019. Speaking about the news, Texas Motor Speedway president Eddie Gossage commented by saying:
Texas Motor Speedway is the second home of Indy-car racing, and we are thrilled to extend our partnership with the Verizon IndyCar Series and with DXC Technology. “We are pleased to have negotiated a sanction agreement that allows Texas Motor Speedway to move forward with INDYCAR. Our company has invested significant dollars into the sport and a tremendous amount of effort growing the sport through the years.
Gossage went on to say:
So many great moments in this sport have occurred at Texas Motor Speedway. “This is and always will be ‘America’s Original Nighttime IndyCar Race.’ Photo finishes and Victory Lane drama have been the standard over the years. No other track has seen as many Verizon IndyCar Series races over the last two-plus decades. Texas Motor Speedway has been good for Indy-car racing and Indy-car racing has been good for Texas Motor Speedway.
