The Long Beach Grand Prix started as an SCCA F5000 race in 1975. In 1976, Long Beach became a stop on the F1 circuit; in 1984, Long Beach signed up with CART ( formerly Indycars, now ChampCar) and has been a major race on the circuit ever since.
The street course has used a variety of configurations over the years.
Founded by promotor Chris Pook, the Long Beach Grand Prix is currently owned and operated by Dover Motorsports, Inc., which is parent of a number of race tracks in the US, including Dover Downs in Delaware.
