WEEHAWKEN, NJ - An official with direct knowledge of the plan says Formula One is coming to New Jersey in June 2013 with a race on the Hudson River shoreline just minutes from New York City.
The person says the Grand Prix event will take place in Weehawken and West New York, with the Manhattan skyline as a backdrop.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity Monday because the race has yet to be announced. A press conference is scheduled in Weehawken on Tuesday.
The U.S. hasn't hosted a Formula One race since 2007 in Indianapolis. A race is scheduled for Austin, Texas, in 2012.
