Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg TicketsIn 2005, St. Petersburg took its place alongside iconic Florida racing locations like Daytona and Sebring when IndyCar came to town. Thundering through the streets of beautiful St. Pete, all-out racers like race-winner Dan Wheldon, Tony Kanaan, Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon brought the best of open-wheel racing to the beaches and bays of Florida. Since then, the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg has become a must-see event that marks the end of winter in the Sunshine State.
