Every year a couple hundred thousand race fans descend on Long Beach, California for the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. The three days of racing include the IndyCar Series, Indy Lights, the Team Drift Challenge, and a Celebrity/Pro Race, so there is constant action on this street course for all three days. For 2014, the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship is a renamed version of the American LeMans Series combined with the earlier GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series, which preceded ALMS. There's also a Thursday kick off party that gets longer every year.
