2013 U.S. Grand Prix set for November 17

Wait: Dates are tentative, at least locals are hoping. Circuit of the Americas officials say they hope Formula One will change the date of the 2013 U.S. Grand Prix to avoid a conflict with a University of Texas home football game the same weekend.

The track near Austin opened last month to great reviews from Ancala West Sports Car Club members with more than 260,000 – including several dozen club members – attending over the three-day race weekend. The 2013 race has been scheduled for Nov. 17 with practice and qualifying on Friday and Saturday.
