Portland International Raceway (PIR) is located in Portland, Oregon's Delta Park complex on the former site of Vanport, just south of the Columbia River. It is west of a light rail station and less than a mile west of Interstate 5.

PIR is built on the former location of Vanport, Oregon, which was destroyed on Memorial Day, May 30th, 1948, when a dike on the Columbia River broke and flooded the city. After the flood had wiped out the city of Vanport, all that remained were the paved streets and concrete foundations of the destroyed homes and buildings.

The first races took place on these old city streets in 1961 during the Portland Rose Festival. Since then, the Rose Cup has become an annual event. Racing at "West Delta Park", as PIR was known back then, was quite dangerous. Racers leaving the track unexpectedly could collide with leftover concrete foundations or fall into ponds. Under the threat of losing the Rose Cup races, since many of the sanctioning racing bodies would no longer sanction races due to the deteriorating roads and dangerous obstacles, the track was finally paved in the 1970s.

Each year from 1998 through 2000 the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series ran a race at Portland International Raceway. The race was added after the demise of the half-mile Portland Speedway that hosted races early in the series. At the end of 2007 and the beginning of 2008, PIR went through a track renovation. The track was repaved with new asphalt and some minor changes were made to the track layout. Turns 4 through 7 were widened. The fence on the inside of turn 6 was moved to provide a better sightline through the corner, and turn 7 was sharpened to slow down racers prior to entering the back straight. Formula One-style curbs were also installed on the track. The track reopened on February 23rd, 2008, with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The track hosts ICSCC and SCCA road racing, the NASCAR Camping World West Series, and SCCA autocross events. The facility includes a drag strip and a motocross track. The road course is almost perfectly flat and runs clockwise, with the front straightaway doubling as a drag strip for the NHRA and IHRA events. Two track configurations are possible. One includes a hard chicane at the end of the front straight (Festival Turns) and involves twelve turns at length of 1.967 miles. Without the chicane, the track has nine turns and a lap length of 1.915 miles.

We will be running WITHOUT FESTIVAL CURVES.
