NEW TO #INDYCAR? Let's get ready for the @GPLongBeach this weekend! #AGPLB

Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach 🐦 @GPLongBeach / #AGPLB / #IndyCar ⭕️ 1.968 mile / 11-turn street circuit ⏱ 85 laps / 167.28 miles πŸ“… Sunday, April 10 @ 3:00pm ET πŸ“Ί @IndyCaronNBC (Big NBC) πŸ“» @IndyCarRadio

As the 2nd most prestigious race on the #IndyCar calendar (behind the #Indy500), Long Beach is a big deal! #AGPLB

Long Beach is the longest-running street race in North America. #IndyCar has run on the streets of Long Beach since 1984 (only skipping 2020 because: pandemic). #AGPLB

On road and street circuits like the @GPLongBeach, we have two tire compounds that each car must run each raceβ€”@FirestoneRacing reds (a softer compound) and the harder Firestone blacks (aka: primary tires). #IndyCar #AGPLB

On road and street circuits in #IndyCar, driver's have Push-to-Passβ€”an extra boost of horsepower engaged by a button on the steering wheel to help with overtaking. #AGPLB

Blue flags have been quite a controversial topic lately in #IndyCar. Remember: the vast majority of blue flags in IndyCar are *not mandatory* blue flags. #AGPLB

We do knockout qualifying for road and street courses. The field is split into two groups. The top 6 qualifiers from each group move onto the Fast 12. Then the top 6 qualifiers from that session move onto the Fast 6 to run for pole. πŸ“Ί Sat., Apr. 9 @ 3:30pm on Peacock #Indycar

As always, there are a ton of different drivers who could win this weekend, but here are some good stories to keep an eye on! #IndyCar #AGPLB

STORY TO WATCH: Can the struggling teams turn it around? We've seen fumbles from both AMSP and Andretti Autosport. Is this the weekend things start to look up? #IndyCar #AGPLB

STORY TO WATCH: Team Penske has come out of the gate swinging. Will their good form continue at the second street circuit of the year? #IndyCar #AGPLB

STORY TO WATCH: The Long Beach hairpin is one of the slowest corners in all of IndyCar (maybe all of motorsports!). Look for great drama and action as the cars slow to 25mph to make it around turn 11. #IndyCar #AGPLB

STORY TO WATCH: The beach, the palm trees, the fast cars, the celebritiesβ€”Long Beach is a vibe! Tune in for support series races, watch for celebrities, and enjoy the Southern California party. #IndyCar #AGPLB
