“Texas is the proud home of the F1 Lenovo United States Grand Prix at Circuit of The Americas, as we bring more tourists to Texas and showcase all the great things our state has to offer,” said Governor Abbott. “Because of its annual exposure on TV across the entire world, F1 has been a magnet to attract international visitors to Austin. This is great for bars, restaurants, and entertainment locations in the area. Texas is home to more Fortune 500 companies than any other state, including Oracle, which has its logo on this car here today. F1 in Austin is an economic boon to Texas.”
