“After leaving the Barber weekend, we all felt the disappointment, but finishing a weekend like that without being able to start the race makes the excitement to go to Long Beach even greater.
“Long Beach is a great event and I’ve always been competitive there in the past – I love the racing on that track. This is going to be another street course and the Team Barracuda – BHA car was fairly decent in St. Pete, so we’re looking forward to getting out there and continuing the progress with Todd [Malloy] and the guys.
“We have a big weekend planned, both on and off the track, with lots of VIP guests from Barracuda Networks and Bowers & Wilkins. We’re looking forward to enjoying a great, sunny weekend at the Motegi Racing hospitality suite in California with the team and our guests.”
