Auto racing officials are expected to announce a new Formula One race that will be run in New Jersey in 2013.

Two officials with knowledge of the announcement say that the Grand Prix event will be contested on a course that runs through the towns of West New York and Weehawken.

A news conference has been scheduled for Tuesday afternoon at the Port Imperial ferry terminal in Weehawken.

The U.S. hasn't hosted a Formula One race since 2007 in Indianapolis. A race is scheduled for Austin, Texas, in 2012.
