Portland International Raceway is a 12-turn, 1.9-mile circuit built on site of the former town of Vanport, which was completely destroyed by a flood in 1948. The land was acquired by the city of Portland in 1960 and the first sports car race was held in conjunction with the 1961 Rose Festival on a circuit composed of some of Vanport’s remaining streets.
