The Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg comprises more than a dozen races spread between the Verizon IndyCar Series, the Mazda Road to Indy, and the Pirelli World Challenge Championships over its three fast-paced days.
In 2017, Frenchman Sébastian Bourdais triumphed in the event’s Verizon IndyCar Series; the previous two years had seen Juan Pablo Montoya of Spain come out on top in consecutive winning performances.
