Over the weekend, downtown Long Beach quite literally became a racetrack.

The Long Beach Grand Prix, which celebrated its 40th race since 1977, took over the streets of the southern California city.

Though the IndyCar race headlined the three-day event, racing fans were also treated to a number of other events, including the Tudor United SportsCar Championship race and the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race, which pits professional race car drivers against celebrities in modified Scion sports cars.

While England’s Mike Conway took home the checkered flag in Sunday's IndyCar race, celebrity aficionados, and MTV fans will be happy to hear that “Awkward"'s Brett Davern outdrove celebrities such as Adrien Brody and professional race car drivers such as Al Unser Jr. to win the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race.

Check out some photos from the event:
