LAS VEGAS, Nevada – March 11, 2006 - Starting from the outside of Row 16 in todays race, PT had a tough time almost from the drop of the green flag. On lap 7 he had a brush with the wall but suffered no damage. Then on lap 23 he had the right front tire go flat which caused him to come close to more wall contact and saw him having to pit leaving him 2 laps down to the field. At lap 87 Paul went to pit and missed the commitment line at pit in causing him a drive-through penalty. That left him 4 laps down to the field with little chance of making much headway. He finishes the race still running in the 36th position.
