This past weekend Kia Racing took to the streets of Long Beach for the third round of the Pirelli World Challenge season. This would be the first visit of my motorsports career to this spectacular street circuit. It was a great opportunity to showcase the capabilities of the Kia Optima Turbo in front of a huge crowd and the racing certainly didn’t disappoint. Starting 6th on the grid, we focused on moving forward and after a hard fought 50 minutes, we ended up with a solid top 5 finish and move to 4th in the overall championship standings.
