Circuit of The Americas (COTA) began February at #1 on Forbes’ list of Best Formula 1 Races to Attend in 2023 and a month later is in the running to claim the Best Motorsports Race in the country.

USA TODAY 10Best ranks a variety of the country’s top travel and lifestyle destinations, experiences, products, and more. A panel of subject experts and the USA TODAY and 10Best editorial teams collect the top 20 nominees and open voting to the public for four weeks.

After votes are collected and tallied, the official Reader’s Choice Awards are showcased on both sites to highlight top-notch attractions and businesses, as well as provide readers with trusted recommendations.

“We are honoured to receive this nomination,” said COTA Founder and Chairman Bobby Epstein. “The Formula One United States Grand Prix at Circuit of The Americas has become the largest festival weekend in all of U.S. Sporting Events because there is something for everyone.


“The race fans appreciate the incredible sightlines and track action, music fans love the shows, families appreciate the wide variety of fun activities, and campers love spending a trackside night under the stars. Just one ticket gives a guest more than 35 hours of celebration and racing competition, so the number of fans keeps growing—you have to see it to believe it.”

Nominated alongside races like the Daytona 500, Bonneville Speed Week, and Go Bowling at the Glen, the United States Grand Prix at Circuit of The Americas represents the only race from Texas. Voting for Best Motorsports Race is now open and continues until Monday, April 10 at 11:59 a.m. EST.
