Miyiiha y'all Indycar dudes & dudettes, and welcome to the NotQuiteHonda Grand Prix of Long Beach OP for the 4th sacred round of this already wondrous Indycar season.
Long Beach is as much LA as Acura is Honda
Yes, miyiiha. That word means 'hello' in the native Tongva tongue of the indigenous souls who lived on these lands thousands of years ( mere minutes to ancient deities like Toh'nee Kahnaan ) before the Europeans settlers settled their settlements. Like a colonial version of the FIA but not so fun.
As you might or might not know, Long Beach is a sort of a suburb of half a million people in the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area. Something akin to Anaheim, Santa Monica and Glendale. But it's still LA.
So as much as the 500 is our king and queen race, as much as Barber is our quirky cute crush, as much as Toronto is our nostalgic crack den and as much as Laguna Seca is now again our Indycar Valhalla ~ Long Beach is our celebrity infected monegasque glitzy GP. And as a soul imbued with late night neon adventures on empty 3AM boulevards and bars bursting with triumph and remorse, I bring you your 2019 definitive guide to the Long Beach Grand Prix complete with all the trapings of modern LA - facts about something fast, pseudo-intellectual vagaries on an obscure hobby ( Motorsport ), random late night musings on an assortment of pretentious topics, tales from the past, Tarot readings and finally Bingo.
Yes ladies and gentlemen, finally our very own Indycar BINGO. How the mighty have
First things first. What is a Long Beach ?
no no, beach, not VEACH
One definition found on the Merriam-Webster online dictionary for 'long' is: having the capacity to reach, extend, or travel a considerable distance.
This I think can correlate to our own group hype for anything Indycar related. We here fortunate enough to be on the Atlas Autosport tribal hypretrain of Indycar delights can all correlate to the sly grins we get on late Wednesday nights when we randomly remember that Indycar is on at the end of this week. This series and the fun we have here together can hearken back to feelings that 'extend, or travel a considerable distance' in our own personal life by giving us endless amounts of brilliant laughter and hard to define Motorsport collective inspiration.
In this way, this race is indeed Long.
First reminder that IMSA is at Long Beach too
The National Geographic Society, a Beach is:
A narrow, gently sloping strip of land that lies along the edge of an ocean, lake, or river. Materials such as sand, pebbles, rocks, and seashell fragments cover beaches.
Most beach materials are the products of weathering and erosion. Over many years, water and wind wear away at the land. The continual action of waves beating against a rocky cliff, for example, may cause some rocks to come loose. Huge boulders can be worn town to tiny grains of sand.
Beach materials may travel long distances, carried by wind and waves. As the tide comes in, for example, it deposits ocean sediment. This sediment may contain sand, shells, seaweed, even marine organisms like crabs or sea anemones. When the tide goes out, it takes some sediment with it.
Tides and ocean currents can carry sediment a few meters or hundreds of kilometers away. Tides and currents are the main way beaches are created, changed, and even destroyed, as the currents move sediment and debris from one place to another.
I think we can all agree that Indycar as noun, verb, adjective and lifestyle is an eroding current of tidal entropy. Let's explore more about this 2019 season of Indycar using geographical analogies of geology and beaches.
Beaches are constantly changing. Tides and weather can alter beaches every day, bringing new materials and taking away others.
Beaches also change seasonally. During the winter, storm winds toss sand into the air.
As DJ Willy P can attest, Indycar celebrates what you built and takes it away in maddening regularity.
But just as well, you can ask one Sunoco Wizard Dixie Scott, and he'll tell you tales of crazy consistency.
Truly this is a sport for those in love with entropy, as well as irony.
Every beach has a beach profile. A beach profile describes the landscape of the beach, both above the water and below it. Beaches can be warm, and rich in vegetation such as palm or mangrove trees. Beaches can also be barren desert coastlines. Other beaches are cold and rocky, while beaches in the Arctic and Antarctic are frozen almost all year.
The profile of this season of Indycar is healthy in chaotic result based obscurity as one can possibly hope for. We still have the usual suspects of the likes of JoNew, Dixie, Willpower, RHR, Rossi mixing it up at the front, but spiced with a lotta Colta condiments.
Let's take every championship challenger in this season and compare them to geographic threats to a beach like ecosystem, just because that in Indycar we can.
The most significant threat to beaches is natural coastal erosion. Coastal erosion is the natural process of the beach moving due to waves, storms, and wind. Beaches that experience consistent coastal erosion are said to be in retreat.
Did someone just say coast?
There is one sacred rule in all things Indycar:
Always bet on Dixon.
Coastal erosion can be influenced by weather systems. Beaches on the island nation of Tuvalu, in the South Pacific, were retreating very quickly in the 1990s. Meteorologists linked this to the weather system known as the El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO). As ENSO events slowed, Tuvalu’s beaches began to recover.
People respond to coastal erosion in different ways. For years, coastal erosion threatened the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, on Hatteras Island in the U.S. state of North Carolina. The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse in the United States. For more than 100 years, it has warned ships of the low-lying sandbars and islands known as the Outer Banks. Coastal erosion made the beach beneath the lighthouse unstable. In 2000, the entire lighthouse was moved 870 meters (2,870 feet) inland.
I don't know about you but this sounds like typical 2013/2015 Dixon-esque Championship scenarios. Beware the Sunoco Coast Mage.
Sea Level Rise
Beaches are also threatened by sea level rise. Sea levels have been gradually rising for many years, drowning some beaches completely.
New Moore Island, for example, was a small, uninhabited island in the Bay of Bengal. Both India and Bangladesh claimed the island, which was little more than a strip of sandy beach. In March 2010, rising sea levels drowned the island completely. New Moore Island is now a sandbar.
Seeing the NAPA colours rise in your mirrors, you know just what squall you are getting into. Always beware the Rise of Rossi.
Although the natural forces of wind and water can dramatically change beaches over many years, human activity can speed up the process. Dams, which block river sediment from reaching beaches, can cause beaches to retreat. In some places, large quantities of sand have been removed from beaches for use in making concrete.
Development threatens the natural landscape of beaches. People develop homes and businesses near beaches for many reasons. Beaches are traditional tourist destinations. Places like the U.S. state of Hawaii, the island nation of Tahiti, and the islands of Greece are all economically dependent on tourism. Businesses, such as charter boat facilities, restaurants, and hotels, are built on the beach.
People also enjoy living near beaches. Beachfront property is often very highly valued. “The Hamptons” are exclusive beach communities on the eastern end of Long Island, New York. Homes in the Hamptons are some of the most expensive in the United States.

JoNew is the quintessential avatar of sustainable forward momentum. The living spirit of Indycar's future and constant upward trajectory indeed. Also it gives me the privileged and excellent excuse to repost this:
Also I got this in the suggested videos:
Our YA with 2 chumps of lesser championships - click4cringe
Many beaches, especially in urban areas, are extremely polluted. Waves wash up debris from the ocean, while drainage pipes or rivers deposit waste from inland areas. Some of this waste includes sewage and other toxic chemicals. After strong storms, some beaches are closed. The amount of bacteria, raw sewage, and other toxic chemicals is hazardous to human health. Sometimes, it takes days or even weeks for the toxic waters to wash out to sea.
Beach pollution also includes garbage, such as plastic bags, cans, and other containers from picnics. Medical waste, such as needles and surgical instruments, has even washed up on beaches.
All beach pollution is harmful to wildlife. Birds may choke on small bits of plastic. Marine mammals such as sea lions may become tangled in ropes, twine, or other material. Floating plastic may prevent algae or sea plants from developing. This prevents animals that live in tide pools, such as sea anemones or sea stars, from finding nutrients.
Will Power is Pollution; praise intoxication.
Reducing pollution is an important way to protect beaches. Visitors should never leave trash on the beach or throw it in the ocean.
Beachgoers should also leave wildlife alone—including birds, plants, and seaweed. Taking shells or live animals from the beach destroys the habitat.
People can also protect beaches from excess erosion. Limiting beachfront development can be an important step in protecting the natural landscape of beaches. Along some beaches, areas of vegetation known as “living shorelines” protect the beach ecosystem from erosion and protect the inland area from floods and storm surges.
And protecting our freedom and Indycar liberty is the original Captain America; the only thing keeping us witnessing a welcomed triumph of the hunter is Honda's harrowing hauntings.
There's one more isomorphic anthropocentric force of unrelenting strength we need to add to list:
With the what? being said, let's talk the where, when and why.
As stated previously this historic grand prix is being held in the LA subhub of Long Beach.

Indycar needs no explanation or intention.
Time to meet the metaphysical portion of this OP. Beginning with the space math astro chart for the start of the Grand Prix, in a vain attempt to ascertain the victor of the race through electional astrology.
What I can witness from this chart is that the ruler of the GP's Leo Ascendant is the Sun at 24 degrees of Aries, in an exalted position trine Jupiter Retrograde at 24 of Sagittarius. I am keeping my eyes on dudes like Hinchcliffe, RHR and Newgarden also weird water ruled Jupiter dudes like Will Power and one oldschool Seabass. Keep one wild eye on dudes like Pagenaud too.
Let's see what the cars say on the Obligatory Indycar Tarot for your fantasy pick abundance:
A - 7 ov Wands
The Seven of Wands is entering Netzach - the depths of creativity and anarchy standing under the number of destiny. And like for all the Seven's, the leaving of the beautiful Tiphareth comes like the fall from paradise. But Fire is a fighter, and though the element seems to be burning down, it will struggle to survive.
So the Seven of Wands talks of a situation where we have to face up forces stronger than ourself, situations that at first sight seem hopeless, yet we'll have to use all that we've learned and fight.
Drive: Courage, fighting spirit, overcoming opposition
Light: Initiation, rebirth
Shadow: Getting attacked, facing hardships
B - The Moon
The Moon will lead us into the blackest depths of our soul, into the world of the subconscious, where there are no more words, just images and notions. It represents a journey into the darkest night, a look behind our own face.
The Moon isn't the most comfortable trump - though everybody likes to equate it with the mysteries, rarely someone really enjoys the look into their own abyss, where sometimes the unvarnished truth is not too pleasant. Embarrassingly enough, the Moon tends to show up what we generally ignore, refuse to see, or even deny all the time.
But the step has to be taken, for without facing up to darkness, we will never see the light.
Unlike most trumps, the Moon has no real negative aspect, but it implies a serious danger. The journey into night could be too much when we're not prepared and we might get lost in our own shadow.
Drive: Entering the underworld, exploring the depths of soul, confrontation with the dark side
Light: Intuitivity, wisdom, maturity, deepest selfrealization
Shadow: Illusion, hysteria, fear, rejection of reality
C - 4 ov Wands
The Four of Wands represents Chesed - the power of condensation, growth and stability, standing in the structural discipline of the 4 - the work is done, the plan was successful, the Fire has settled and reigns over its realms.
Fire is the element that stands for Atziluth, the world closest to divinity, and though the card might talk of every possible endeavour - a job, a relationship, an intellectual research, it is most likely aiming at something more spiritual.
This explains the upcoming of the card in such seemingly inappropriate situations like big family troubles or failed business projects - hereby the card shows us that we've learned a lesson and that the failure in the 'profane' world was just what we needed to achieve more spiritual maturity.
Drive: Perfection, rest after labor, completion after effort and trouble, structure, control
Light: Completition, well earned rewards, rest after labor
Shadow: Overestimation, torpidity, loss of tranquility
D - 10 ov Wands
The Ten of Wands are standing for suppression and restriction, showing the Fire on the grounds of the Earth, where they cause an uncontrolled, destructive burning.
Fire is not made to rest on the grounds, having lost the contact to the higher levels of spirit, it mutates to a blind and cruel force , not understanding the own self anymore. Fire is a power that has to be handled with imagination and reflection, not with stubborness and hardened standards.
To understand the card, you have to understand the qualities of the Wands which stand for Chiah, the general living spark, the vitality of soul. You cannot force it down, a free bird cannot survive in a cage.
Drive: Cruel and overbearing force, thirst for might
Light: The chance to think about it, learning
Shadow: Cruelty, excessive pressure, selfish and material ends, dogmatism, aggression
3 cards of FIre. Think about flames, and you'll know who to pick. Use instinct rather than overanalysis. Go with your heart and gut. May your picks be made ov and in abundance.
And with that all being said, we move to the last portion of the OP.
By semi-popular demand and using the Pre-Seson test template from earlier this year ~ I bring you the Long Beach Bingo '19 Indyclusterf**k.
And this ain't no BS 3x3, 4x4 or 5x5 nonsense. In honour of our endless memes and brilliance I gift you the first Indycar BINGO try with a montrous 7x7. All hail 49!
Feel free to use this template as you wish all weekend long and for all future Indycar races.
Let's have a great and safe weekend of racing. As a final purple light Venus fortune spirit:
Here is someone from Long Beach.
And one last blessing from the Tongva, the OGs of this land:
Dixon = Turtle; WP = Earthquake, surely.
