Formula 1 United States Grand Prix TicketsFormula 1 has a very proud history in the United States. The first US Grand Prix was held in 1908, meaning it actually predates the official founding of Formula 1. At the time, the race was known as the "American Grand Prize." The race has been held on and off in the years since then. In 1958, the name United States Grand Prix made its official debut. That year, the race was held at Riverside International Raceway in California. Chuck Daigh won that race, driving a Scarab. The following year, the race moved to Sebring, Fla. This was an official Formula 1 event. Though the venues and sometimes names have changed over the years, one thing that's always been constant about the US Grand Prix is the skill and excitement on display during the race.
