The 2022 season was a memorable one. Some of the notable racing highlights delivered from GSRP events to fans included:


  • RP Funding joined the team as the presenting sponsor of the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. The newly named Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg presented by RP Funding kicked off the NTT INDYCAR SERIES season for the 12th time in February. The race featured a breakthrough for Team Penske driver Scott McLaughlin who began a productive season with his first career INDYCAR win.
  • The 61st season of racing at Mid-Ohio Sports Course began May 13-15 with Lexus partnering as a new event sponsor. 
  • In June, GSRP brought a NASCAR national series back to the Pacific Northwest for the first time since 2000 as Portland International Raceway hosted its inaugural NASCAR Xfinity Series event. Pacific Office Automation became the title sponsor of the new event, the Pacific Office Automation 147, joining other key event partners: the City of Portland, Travel Portland, Sport Oregon and Toyota. The race was won in dramatic come-from-behind fashion by A.J. Allmendinger in front of a tremendous crowd despite rainy conditions. 
  • Scott McLaughlin claimed his second GSRP event win at The Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio Presented by the All-New 2023 Civic Type R over Fourth of July weekend. The event also featured Ohio State tight end and Lexington (OH) native Cade Stover as grand marshal, a fireworks display and patriotic “Camping with Honda” festivities. 
  • Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course hosted another major spectator event the following weekend as the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series made its first ever appearance at the renowned road course. O’Reilly Auto Parts helped make the new event possible as the title sponsor. Parker Kligerman won the first-ever O’Reilly Auto Parts 150 at Mid-Ohio in his No. 75 Henderson Racing Chevrolet by a narrow 0.119-second margin of victory over Zane Smith. 
  • After a two-year hiatus, the Honda Indy Toronto made its triumphant return to downtown Toronto at Exhibition Place, July 15-17! The return of the summer festival featured the renewal of Honda Fan Friday presented by the Ontario Honda Dealers Association, eight-time Juno Award winning rock band Arkells as grand marshals and a historic victory by Scott Dixon who tied Mario Andretti at No. 2 in all-time INDYCAR SERIES wins. 
  • In the final GSRP event of the year, the “Year of Scotts” continued as Scott McLaughlin captured his third win of the year at the Grand Prix of Portland on Labor Day weekend. McLaughlin beat out his Team Penske teammate and eventual 2022 NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Will Power by a 1.1792-second margin.
