Video: Track Walk (and Roll) Long Beach

IndySoup takes a lap around Long Beach as the IndyCar drivers walk the track to get ready for the Grand Prix race, Thursday 14 April 2011. Seasoned drivers Danica Patrick, Ryan Briscoe, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Mike Conway, Tony Kanaan, Will Power, and rookies Charlie Kimball and Sebastian Saavedra inspect the course. Thanks to (Grand Prix Association of Long Beach President and CEO) Jim Michaelian for granting me permission to walk and roll around this amazing street circuit!

Video: Sam Schmidt @ Long Beach 2011

Sam Schmidt from Sam Schmidt Motorsports (coincidence?) talks with IndySoup about nicknames, pit boxes and the fact that if he wants to, Alex Zanardi would be fully eligible and capable to race in Las Vegas this year in a hand-control modified Dallara IndyCar.

Let’s make it happen!
