The race in New Jersey will be run on a 3.2-mile track along the banks of the Hudson River in Weehawken and West New York with the New York skyline in the background. The race was installed in the June 1 slot between the May 25 race in Monaco and the June 8 Canadian Grand Prix.
The International Federation of the Automobile, the F1 governing body known by its French initials FIA, released the 2014 schedule Friday. It includes a record 22 races, although the events in New Jersey, Mexico and South Korea, where a race has been run each year since 2010, were listed as provisional.
In addition to the United States, new races were included from Mexico, Austria and Russia.
There are 19 races on the 2013 calendar. The Indian Grand Prix, set for Oct. 27 this year, isn't on the 2014 schedule.
The Grand Prix of America was dropped from the 2013 schedule due to a lack of sponsorship support. If the race is run, there will be two Grand Prix races in the United States. The U.S. Grand Prix set for Nov. 9 in Austin, Texas.
The Austrian Grand Prix would be June 22 in Spielberg and the Russian Grand Prix is penciled in for Oct. 5 in Sochi. The Mexican Grand Prix would be Nov. 16 in Mexico City.
The 2014 Formula 1 season opens March 16 in Australia with the final race Nov. 30 in Brazil.
