Long Beach, CA. (Apr. 15). After starting in eighth position, Team Falken Tire finished 6th in the GT class today in the Tequila Patron American Le Mans Series at Long Beach, a home track for the Fontana based team. The team entered the weekend hoping for a second straight street course win on the 1.968 mile track, with the previous win being on the streets of Baltimore last season. With their unbeatable rain tire set up, the team conquered the charts in the rain-filled practice session and qualifying session on Friday. However, the weather conditions resulted in the qualifying session results to be abandoned, forcing the team to give up the pole position and start the race based on their position in the championship point standings.
