New Jersey was one of three grands prix listed provisionally on a record 22-race Formula One calendar published by the governing FIA on Friday.
The inaugural Grand Prix of the Americas, to be staged against a backdrop of the New York skyline, had looked doubtful earlier in the year when it was absent from a draft calendar circulated to teams.
The calendar issued by the International Automobile Federation gave New Jersey a June 1 date, a week before the Canadian race in Montreal. The Korean Grand Prix, which moves to April 27, and a return of Mexico on Nov. 16, were also listed as provisional.
Russia will make its debut with a race in Sochi on Oct 5. and Austria returns on June 22.
