The Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach is second only to the Indianapolis 500 in longevity on the IZOD IndyCar Series schedule. Of course, the series will make only its second visit to the scenic SoCal circuit this weekend. The previous 34 events (2008 was Indy Racing League sanctioned but Champ Car staged its farewell event before unification) were a mix. The temporary street course originally ran as a Formula 5000 race in 1975, moved to Formula One from 1976-83, then became a CART/Champ Car event from 1984-2008.
