2015 Long Beach Grand Prix

 

A couple weekends ago was the Long Beach Grand Prix and this year I made sure I wasn’t going to miss it. The event started Friday with practice and qualifying on Saturday and racing on Sunday. I got tickets for Sunday J my morning started about 5am so I could see the first race at 7:20, which was the Robby Gordon Stadium Super Trucks. I lucked out on traffic from San Clemente to the shore of Long Beach just a few minutes before the race began. The green flag dropped and there was about a dozen V8 roaring trucks hitting metal ramps placed throughout the LBGP road course (race photo below). I was happy to see some familiar faces racing that I know from the Lucas Oil Racing series. After the SST race, they moved the ramps off the track and the exotic cars came out for their race (Video bellow). All Sunday had back to back races almost every hour and spent all day watching intense racing and enjoyed all the vendors out at the LBGP. While the Indy cars were getting ready I ran into Playboy Playmate sister Charis. She was signing shirts and poster for LBGP fans and I got a chance to catch up and talk right before the Indy car race started. My seats were right at a u-turn on the track, which had great action and racing throughout the turn. Sunday was a fun full day of racing leaving me wanting to speed race home. I can’t wait for next years Long Beach Grand Prix. With the weekend coming to an end I can’t wait for this coming Saturday. I rented out the Lake Elsinore Lucas oil race track to practice in both of my rzr’s for the next round of Lucas oil Regionals round 4.

Thank you for following the life of me and Katie V racing.
