AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The 2014 racing calendar will have Formula One and NASCAR racing deep in the heart of Texas on the same day.
The FIA, international motorsports' governing body, released its 2014 calendar Wednesday, placing the U.S. Grand Prix in Austin on Nov. 2. That's the same day as the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, a three-hour drive from Austin.
Eddie Gossage, president of Texas Motor Speedway, called it a ''foolish move'' by F1 to compete with NASCAR for racing fans. Officials at the Circuit of the Americas, host of the U.S. Grand Prix, did not immediately comment.
