Alfonso Ribeiro came out as the victor at this year’s Grand Prix of Long Beach. The actor won the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race, and celebrated with his wife and kids.
This year’s win was especially sentimental for Alfonso because it was the final Pro/Celebrity Race that Toyota was hosting. It was also the second time that his wife and sons had the opportunity to see him triumph on the track.
“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,” Alfonso said after the competition. “There were a lot of celebrities that qualified higher than I did, and to all those guys, they did a great job and they qualified great,” he added. “But they inverted the field and it worked in my favor.”
Alfonso has been in the winner’s circle quite often these past few months. The actor won the 2015 Pro/Celebrity Race last year and was the victor on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ in 2014.
Alfonso and his wife, Angela, welcomed their youngest son, Anders, last year. The couple’s oldest son, Alfonso Jr., will celebrate his third birthday this year. Sienna is Alfonso’s daughter from a previous relationship.
