Alfonso Ribeiro won the 40th and final Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race, a fan favorite event at the Grand Prix of Long Beach.
Ribeiro was also the celebrity winner in 1994 and 1995, and the Pro winner in 2015. The host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” also won “Dancing with the Stars” in 2014.
“I owe an awful lot to the city of Long Beach, they’ve been so supportive, and to Toyota, 40 years putting on this fantastic Pro/Celebrity Race and promoting Long Beach the way they have,” Ribeiro said.
Max Papis won the Pro category by finishing 4.872 seconds behind Ribeiro.
“It is just an amazing event and who won was the kids this event supports,” said Papis. “This is the best street course in America, maybe the world.”
