Visor Cam: Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach

Take a lap with Simon Pagenaud around the 1.968 mile street course in Long Beach, California.

Featuring racing at a combination of superspeedways, short ovals, road courses and temporary street circuits, the IndyCar Series offers its international lineup of drivers the most diverse challenges in motorsports. The top point scorer is crowned the series champion and receives a $1 million bonus.

Founded in 1994, INDYCAR serves as the sanctioning body for the IndyCar Series. Its first race was the Indy 200 on Jan. 27, 1996, at Walt Disney World Speedway in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. (It was won by Buzz Calkins).

These stars drive single-seat, open-cockpit cars that feature a 2.2-liter, twin turbocharged, direct-injected V-6 engine optimized to run at 12,000 RPM with an estimated 500-700 horsepower depending on the turbocharger boost setting. The consumer-relevant engines, which are supplied by Chevrolet and Honda, utilize E85 fuel.

ABC and NBCSN provide comprehensive live, high-definition television coverage of the IndyCar Series in the United States, while ESPN International oversees race coverage to 212 countries. The TV telecasts are complemented by the IMS Radio Network for each event, which includes Sirius XM Satellite Radio and the American Forces Radio Network.
