"Laughlin has been instrumental for the success of Formula One over the past few years," said Bart Garbrecht, President of the Formula One P.R.O.P. Tour. "Their continued support as the series' title sponsor and as a race venue has added value to the sport. There is no better match than that of the high speeds and excitement of Formula One racing and the thrill of Laughlin's casino action. We are all excited for the start of the Formula One season on the Colorado River."
