The Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach will be held April 17 next year, the third race in the 2011 IndyCar Series schedule announced Friday.

The schedule starts with a street race in St. Petersburg, Fla., on March 27, includes a return to the Milwaukee Mile in Wisconsin on June 19 and for the first time features a street race in Baltimore, on Sept. 4. IndyCar's crown jewel, the Indianapolis 500, is scheduled May 29.

A site for the season finale in October hasn't yet been chosen, although there is speculation it might be held at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Ryan Hunter-Reay won this year's Long Beach grand prix, which is run on a 1.97-mile, 11-turn course through the city's seaside streets.
