Long Beach Grand Prix – A Day To Remember! A Victory For Sam Schmidt

Updated: April 9, 2017

April 9, 2017, What a day to remember in so many ways. Long Beach Grand Prix has yet another victory under their belt. Fans, Celebs, Racing and of course a well organized event. Things started out very interesting when a truck clipped a water hydrant Sunday morning sending a river of water on the track, which could have been a very dangerous, but during a red flag session, the safety team jumped in and dried the track. The program continued without further delay. Race back on track. As the afternoon rolls on and the long anticipated main event begins, the 43rd Long beach Grand Prix, brings us to a very close race. Throughout the day and to the end, brings us a victory for a person who has been a patronage in the sports of Indy, has won today, Sam Schmidt. Yes, I said Sam Schmidt team co-owner of winning driver James Hinchcliffe. A Man that has been through so much in life. A man that has greater expectations then most of us have. Has done it again. I will have more on this soon. First lets go ahead and give you, the Indy fan, some eye candy. The Fans, always incredible, the Celebs showing their support for those whom they follow and love. The National Anthem with a military fly over, Which would make anyone proud to be an American. Yes, today is one of those days, I love to do what I do. Who would not want to be a part of the largest road course event in the Indy car schedule. So I have put together a few photos for you, the fan! that could not be there for this incredible event.
