Indy Car Hype: Toyota Grand Prix Of Long Beach (Gallery And Video)

Posted on 04.23.13 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

I know I am a little behind but hey I took on three days and three different motorsports all by myself!  It was rough, but fun.  By now you probably already know that Takuma Sato made history by winning the Toyota Grand Prix Of Long Beach and becoming the first Japanese driver to win an Indy Car event as well as the first Japanese driver to win at Long Beach.  However, despite what he said in his post race interview, it did not come easy. 

Long Beach is known for being a dangerous narrow street course and the walls ate up plenty of drivers this year, including defending champion Ryan Hunter-Reay.  Sato was able to navigate his way through all of the random carnage unscathed and his team managed a top notch pit stop to keep their driver up front which allowed him to go on and get the victory.  Graham Rahal came second behind Sato and Justin Wilson got his first podium of the season with a third place finish.

If you want to see all the action for yourself check out the highlight reel below.  If you want to see the fruit of my three days of labor hit the red text for the full gallery on our facebook page.
