    Default Pirelli World Challenge at Long Beach

    If you are planning on watching this, you will be sorely disappointed. It was a one hour race and they only got in 6-7 green-flag laps. A lot of carnage, including Bryan. He qualified 13th and got up as far as 5th, I think. I'll watch it just to see where it all happened, it certainly wasn't in my area.

    It gets worse. PWC has issued massive penalties.

    Now I've got to watch the video of the race to see what WTF happened.

    From what I've read, it all seems out of hand. I don't know how their driver meeting went, but, these issues should have been worked out there ahead of time.

    After watching the race on the DVR yesterday, it's quite obvious why Bryan was penalized. He was showing some "big boy" moves and got caught. His 1st place at Barber sure makes it all worthwhile. I think they now know he's a real driver and can mix it up with them all.
