Every Spring the streets of downtown Long Beach California echo with the sound of high performance racing engines. The highlight of the weekend has been the Verizon IndyCar Series.
Here are pictures taken during the first practice session for the 2015 event.
During the race Castroneves took advantage of his pole victory and controlled the early going, but Dixon took the lead with 46 laps to go during the first pit-stop sequence. Dixon maintained his lead for the rest of the race and even stayed out in front during the final pit-stop sequence.
Castroneves maintained second followed by points leader Juan Pablo Montoya.
