With Formula 1 racing heading to Austin, a local group wants to bring Indy car racing back to Houston. To that end, Mi-Jack Promotions, Harris County, the City of Houston and SMG Reliant Park formed the Grand Prix of Houston local organizing committee. The committee aims to bring the Indy Racing League back to Reliant Park in 2012. Indy cars last roared through the city in 2006 and 2007 during the Grand Prix of Houston.

The races brought about $35 million per year to our area.
