Uncle Joe Benson at work & play at the Long Beach Grand Prix - April 2005.
April 8 - 10, 2005: For the 19th consecutive year, J.B. made the scene at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach — albeit without his own race car for the first time in seven years. In addition to time spent on the P.A. with his old friends Bruce Flanders and Terry Clanton, Unc hung out with fans and enjoyed the best street race in America!
