In Pictures: 2021 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer

The NTT IndyCar Series wrapped up its 2021 campaign with 46th Annual Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach last Sunday. Initially, the race was intended to be held in April but was postponed until late September, but what better race to cap off the 16-round odyssey than the sport’s biggest street circuit.

When the dust settled, Andretti Autosport continued its dominance on the streets. Only this time, it was Colton Herta who owned the competition and went on to score his third win of the year.

As far as the championship trail was concerned, Spain’s Alex Palou locked up the championship. He was able to beat Josef Newgarden by 37 points to become the first Spaniard to win the series title.

Without further ado, here’s my photo gallery from the 85-lap finale.
