He would spend the duration of the race battling with teammate Tomy Drissi, and eventually both he and Tomy were able to get around the Ferrari and begin to catch the lead trio. The race was a rare caution-free event, and due to the tight confines of the street circuit, passing was at a premium. Lawson went on to finish 5th, Tomy 6th and Justin 8th, while Jeff had contact that forced him to retire from the race.
Tadevic said, "We had a mixed weekend, if I'm honest. As a team, we've yet to put together a really solid weekend here at Long Beach, but we managed to salvage good championship points here. We'd hoped for more, and we feel like we left some fruit on the tree, but the next few races will really be a dogfight for the entire paddock. With Miller coming up next, we may be a bit down on straight-line speed to some of the larger displacement cars, but Laguna's just after that and we've traditionally gone well there. All of our guys have ample experience at the next two tracks, and as they say, it's a long championship and we're just getting underway. We're looking forward to getting out to Salt Lake City here in a few weeks and taking the fight back to the Cadillac boys there!"
TruSpeed Motorsports races next on April 27-28 at Miller Motorsports Park, outside of Salt Lake City, UT.
