I wouldn't say he exceeds the speed of light, as he has a head start. While both are moving at the speed of light, Bart had a slight advantage seeing that he started a millisecond before the beam.

IIRC, at the end of Wally run, the light speed barrier was no longer an issue. Wally had master the Speed Force enough that he could go pass the speed of light without any problems.

True

I would love to see Bart on the JLA

... if you follow Bart's race with the Photon beam closely you'll see that, while he did have a sliver of a lead in the beginning he was still so close that he could feel the heat of the beam. However in the middle of the race (for instance, across the Atlantic) Bart was clearly ahead by a decent margin and near the end he actually had to slow down so as to ensure the beam was close enough that it wouldn't miss the gun turret. Assuming the photon beam was traveling at the speed of light, Bart would have to have been going a good deal faster to accomplish what he did.

Perhaps, but look how long it took Wally to do so. Bart pretty much shattered the light barrier in his first all out run.
