IndyCar racing is putting Sonoma County in its rear view mirror again.

The open-wheel racing series, best known for its iconic Indianapolis 500 over Memorial Day weekend each year, is maneuvering to move its final race of the season to Monterey County’s Laguna Seca raceway.

On Tuesday, the Monterey County board of supervisors is poised to authorize the signing of a three-year contract with IndyCar LLC to race at its county-owned track in 2019, 2020 and 2021.

Sonoma Raceway has hosted IndyCar since 2005, with the Sonoma Gran Prix series finale determining the year’s points championship since 2015.

This season’s 85-lap Gran Prix is set for September 16 and will again determine the 2018 series championship.
