First Xfinity Series Race at Portland International Raceway


Xfinity Series - Pacific Office Automation 147



To stay on par with new and exciting things happening this year at NASCAR, the Xfinity Series will be heading to Oregon to race for the very first time at Portland International Raceway, a track built on history.


What was once America’s largest public housing project for nearly 40,000 Kaiser shipyard workers and their families during and after World War II is now a 1.97-mile paved road course that has hosted over 50 years-worth of racing events.


Portland International Raceway is built on 268 acres of what was once known as the City of Vanport. Less than 15 years after the city was washed away by a flood in 1948, the City of Portland acquired the land. With the growing interest in sports car and drag racing in the 1960s, Portland International Raceway was born and has been hosting regular races since 1965.


NASCAR first visited Portland International Raceway with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 1999 and 2000. Greg Biffle won the 1999 Truck Series race and Andy Houston won in 2000.


This weekend the competitors will be challenged 147.75 miles (75 laps) and the event will be broken up into three stages that are 25 laps each.


Drivers will kick off the inaugural Pacific Office Automation 147 Pacific Office Automation 147 at Portland International Raceway on Saturday, June 4 at 4:30 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR radio.
