After earning his first Indy Lights triumph two weeks ago at St. Petersburg, Andretti Autosport’s Zach Veach will seek back-to-back wins to start the season in today’s Indy Lights Grand Prix of Long Beach.
You can watch the 45-lap race today at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra for your online/mobile device.
The race will take you up to LIVE coverage of the Verizon IndyCar Series main event, the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, which starts at 4 p.m. ET.
The 19-year-old Veach won the pole for today’s Lights contest but will have to deal with Gabby Chaves on the outside of the front row.

As Lewis Hamilton took another step towards his fourth Formula 1 World Championship Sunday at the United States Grand Prix at Circuit of The Americas, plenty of other topics of discussion emerged in the wake of Round 17 of the season from Austin.
