The Grand-Am series will not return to New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville next year.

Grand-Am released its 12-race 2013 schedule Friday, and NJMP was left off for the first time since the Millville facility opened in 2008.

Grand-Am was the first major series to race at NJMP when it opened. It was the biggest-drawing event that season and has been second-biggest behind the American Motorcyclist Association since then.

Grand-Am’s 2013 schedule includes three new races in Austin, Texas; Braselton, Ga.; and Kansas City, Kan.

The news was not entirely surprising. Grand-Am announced a merger with the American Le Mans Series earlier this month that will consolidate both their schedules in 2014, and NJMP general manager Brad Scott expressed doubt at the time that Grand-Am would even be back in 2013.

Here is the schedule:

Jan. 26-27 Daytona International Speedway

March 2 Circuit of the Americas

April 6 Barber Motorsports Park

April 20 Road Atlanta

June 1 Detroit Belle Isle

June 15 Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course

June 30 Watkins Glen International

July 26 Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Aug. 10* Road America 

Aug. 17 Kansas Speedway

Sept. 8 Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca

Sept. 28 Lime Rock Park

*Combination event with American Le Mans Series
