Uncle Joe Benson at work & play at the 2003 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.
April 11-13, 2003: The Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach has always been about people having fun as much as it's been about racing on the streets. And 2003 was no exception. For the 17th consecutive year, J.B. made the scene with Saturday and Sunday Morning Meet & Greets at the ARROW 93 booth. The Uncle Joe's 300ZX race car was also on display with it's brand new paint. A great time was had by all!
