2015 – Indy Car Pre-Race at the Grand Prix of Long Beach (Apr 17 to 19)

The pre-race festivities before each Indy Car race are an exciting time for race fans to walk the front straight and pit lane, get close to the cars being prepared for the race, and to see the drivers at the race day introductions. The pre-race at Long Beach was no exception. Hope you like the photos.
