LONG BEACH GRAND PRIX! YES! It is that time of year again, folks! I am all checked in, set up and ready to rip for this one! Last year was a blast... Ed Brown & I finished 8th, one lap down, but set the fastest lap of the Ferrari's during the race. This year we're better-armed with our new Ferrari F458 Italia GT and we're going to keep Ed on the lead lap (because he's a PIMP and been working real hard preparing for this race) - putting me in striking distance for the finish. I cannot wait for this! I absolutely love this place.
I first drove at Long Beach in 2001, in my very first CART Toyota Atlantic race. I hadn't been back (driving) until last year. This year marks 10 YEARS since my first Long Beach experience. I hope to make it a memorable one!
