IndyCar's 2018 schedule has one substantial change: Watkins Glen International is no longer on the calendar. The upstate New York road course will be replaced by Portland International Raceway for the Labor Day weekend race at the beginning of September.

Additionally, the Phoenix Grand Prix, held on April 29th this year, has been moved to April 7th, while Long Beach has been moved up a week to April 15th. The Indianapolis 500 will be held on May 27th, while the double header in Detroit takes place June 2nd and 3rd.

Currently, there are 17 races on the 2018 calendar, but an additional race at the Formula 1 circuit in Mexico City is still being discussed as a possible addition to the calendar sometime in August—there's no word on when (or if) that race will be finalized, however.

Check out the full schedule right here:

March 11 – Streets of St. Petersburg
April 7 – Phoenix Raceway
April 15 – Streets of Long Beach
April 22 – Barber Motorsports Park
May 12 – Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course
May 27 – Indianapolis 500
June 2-3 – Raceway at Belle Isle Park
June 9 – Texas Motor Speedway
June 24 – Road America
July 8 – Iowa Speedway
July 15 – Streets of Toronto
July 29 – Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course
Aug. 19 – Pocono Raceway
Aug. 25 – Gateway Motorsports Park
Sept. 2 – Portland International Raceway
Sept. 16 – Sonoma Raceway
...and now I'll go back to my side of the planet.
