Blazing Hot Tracks at Grand Prix of Long Beach, Calif.

The temperature may be 85 degrees along the oceanfront course, but the streets of Long Beach are blazing hot as the roaring thunder & burned rubber on the Long Beach pavement fills the air with excitement in downtown Long Beach April 15 - 17, 2011. The annual tradition, Grand Prix of Long Beach, is three fun-filled days of fast cars, pretty girls, bands, concerts, food, vendor expos (this year a zip line has been added), and so much to see and do that your engine can go into overdrive if you don't pace yourself.
