Long Beach Grand Prix 2009

Long Beach, California, home to the Ice Dogs, the Queen Mary, and my old hometown. Once a year in April, the thunder of Indy Cars fills ocean drive. Way back I used to come here every year. Lately it's been once in a blue moon. Fortunately, this year I was able to score a ticket for saturday.
Pro winner Al Unser Jr. and celebrity winner Keanu Reeves taking a victory lap!

Which included the Toyota celebrity race and
Taka Aono in the lifestyle expo hall.
Formula D tandem practice.

Definitely a plus to see awesome cars racing and drifting. The highlight of the day was having Danica Patrick passing by within inches of me, she must be practicing. Definitely a minus for my camera crapping out early and didn't get a picture. The pics themselves are not that great either since it's literally pointing and shooting. If you recall the screen is broke.

Anyways for the rest of the crappy pics go here.
