C.J. Wilson attends Long Beach as a photographer
LONG BEACH, CALIF. (AP) - Los Angeles Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson spent Friday morning at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach shooting photos of the American Le Mans Series and IndyCar Series practice sessions before heading to Angels Stadium for his evening game against the Detroit Tigers.
Well known for his passion for motorsports, he owns CJ Wilson Racing, which fields two Mazda MX-5s in the GRAND-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge as well as several cars in the Mazda MX-5 Cup series.
Wilson’s baseball schedule usually precludes him from being at the racetrack, outside of the Rolex 24 At Daytona, which is held in January.
“It was a rare experience for me to get out to a real race event during the baseball season,” Wilson said. “I got to take some photos for a few hours and check in with Tristan (Nunez) and some of my other friends on the ALMS circuit also. Just being around the Indy series cars and the prototypes was a fantastic aural experience. I can’t wait to edit the photos. Hopefully one day I can compete in the race.”
