Braselton, GA – In a rather subdued ceremony upon the conclusion of the 2018 running of Petit Le Mans the remaining Continental race tires were taken behind the media center, put out of their misery, and shot. Sources in the paddock say the tires had it coming after years of neglect and drying out.  Multiple team owners, who did not want to be named, said Continental spent too much on podcasts and not enough on development. One especially upset team owner commented, “These days there’s so much going on, no one seems to want to know.”
