Brian's in the car again, running full throttle on the banking. He's getting
a taste for it now. At the front, the leaders are still swapping places. The Predator car is too many laps down, but at least it's still going. Back in the pits, the advice is clear - don't screw it up now. Just roll the thing home. Brian swaps with Elliot and collapses in a chair, steam pouring off his sweaty head. "I was going quick, me son," he says. "Quicker than I ever was before. I had to let the leaders through, but I felt good about that."
He'll do one final stint before the day's out. He doesn't screw it up. They finish 32nd overall. Up front, Justin Wilson's MSR team takes the win, just five seconds ahead of Allan McNish's Starworks.
