Race Notes
  • The 2023 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach was 85 laps on the 11-turn, 1.968-mile Streets of Long Beach temporary circuit. The pit road speed limit was 45 mph and the race started the third time past the start-line flag stand. Pole sitter Kyle Kirkwood gridded drivers' left.
  • The fuel window was approximately 26–29 laps under green-flag conditions, assuming all teams employed a two-stop strategy.
  • All cars but those of Pato O'Ward, Josef Newgarden, Scott McLaughlin, Felix Rosenqvist, Will Power, Jack Harvey, Helio Castroneves, Sting Ray Robb, Benjamin Pedersen, Graham Rahal and Conor Daly started on green-sidewalled Firestone alternate tires. Each car was required to use one set of new alternate tires and one set of primary tires during the race.
  • At 12:30 p.m. PDT, 15 minutes before the scheduled green-flag time, the ambient temperature in Long Beach was 61 degrees with partly cloudy skies. The track temperature was 98 degrees according to Firestone engineers.
  • At 12:38 p.m., Adam Henrique of the Anaheim Ducks gave the command, "Drivers, start your engines." All engines fired and all cars rolled on the grid.
  • Pole sitter Kirkwood led the field into Turn 1 on Lap 1. In Turn 2, the No. 06 Meyer Shank Racing Honda of Helio Castroneves made contact with the wall. The incident brought out the race's first full-course caution. Needing a new front wing assembly, Castroneves took service in a closed pit and was subsequently issued a penalty and was forced to take the restart from the back of the field.
  • The race restarted at the conclusion of Lap 3 with Kirkwood leading Marcus Ericsson. Kirkwood's lead grew to 1.6301 seconds by Lap 18.
  • On Lap 20, the race's second and final full-course caution period began when wheel-to-wheel contact between the No. 9 Chip Ganassi Racing Honda of Scott Dixon and the No. 5 Arrow McLaren Chevrolet of O'Ward drove Dixon's car into the tires in Turn 5. The damage sustained eventually forced Dixon to withdraw from the race, relegating him to a finish of 27th.
  • Since the second caution period was close to the first pit-stop window for a two-stop strategy, the leaders pitted on Lap 22. Kirkwood won the race off pit road followed by Newgarden and Ericsson.
  • The No. 78 Juncos Hollinger Racing Chevrolet of Agustín Canapino, which did not pit during the caution, assumed the race lead and led the field on the restart at the conclusion of Lap 25.
  • On Lap 26, Newgarden took the race lead and remained ahead of Kirkwood until green-flag pit stops which began on Lap 52.
  • Newgarden's Lap 52 stop returned to race lead to Kirkwood, who led until his own pit stop on Lap 54. At the conclusion of the green-flag pit stops, which served as the final stops of the race, Kirkwood regained the race lead on Lap 56 ahead of teammate Romain Grosjean.
  • Kirkwood went on to lead the remainder of the race and took the white flag with a 0.9305-second advantage over Grosjean.
  • Kirkwood crossed the finish line 0.9907 seconds ahead of Grosjean, securing his first NTT IndyCar Series victory.
  • Grosjean, Ericsson, Colton Herta and Alex Palou completed the top five. Marcus Armstrong, who finished eighth, had the best rookie result. Newgarden, who was strong early, dropped back in the final third of the race while saving fuel and ended the day in the ninth position.
  • Championship points after the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach:
    1. Ericsson 110
    2. O'Ward 95
    3. Palou 91
    4. Newgarden 89
    5. Kirkwood 74
    6. Dixon 72
    7. Grosjean 71
    8. Herta 69
    9. McLaughlin 68
    10. Power 68

Session Notes
  • The first practice for the 2023 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach started at 3:05 p.m. PDT and ran for its full scheduled 75 minutes until 4:20 p.m.
  • The session was marred by two penalties:
    • Scott Dixon served a drive-through penalty for exceeding track limits at drivers’ right in Turn 1, which invalidated Dixon’s 10th lap.
    • Hello Castroneves was penalized five minutes for causing a red flag when his No. 06 Meyer Shank Racing Honda stopped in Turn 11.
  • Pato O’Ward was the fastest of the session, while Dixon’s earlier penalty wasn’t able to keep him from turning the second-fastest lap.
