Tooele's Ian Lacey made it a clean sweep of the weekend in the Pacific F2000 Championship, winning two races on two days on two different track configurations. After winning on Saturday on the 2.18-mile West Course, he posted a second win on Sunday on the 3.048-mile Outer Course, bringing his No. 12 DFR Racing Van Diemen RF-01 home 2.248sec clear of Bobby Kelley (No. 21 DFR Racing Van Diemen), who also repeated his Saturday result. Camren Kaminsky (No. 34 PR1 Motorsports Van Diemen) finished third, another 20 seconds behind.

In the final race of the weekend, Jim Walsh went one better in the second Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy USA West race than he did Saturday, taking the win in his No. 96 Red Dog Racing entry by a very close 0.228sec over Steve Miller's No. 7 Racers Group entry. Doug Baron completed the podium, more than 17 seconds behind. Loren Beggs (No. 03 911 Designs) won the Gold class and Mark Brouse (No. 59 Air Power Racing) again won the Silver class.

The next major event at Miller Motorsports Park will be The BigM Weekend over Memorial Day weekend, May 26-28. The FIM Superbike World Championship will return as the headlining series, once again making their only appearance in the Western Hemisphere. As was the case last year, support races will be provided by AMA Pro Road Racing, with the National Guard American SuperBike Championship, the GoPro Daytona SportBike Championship, the Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport Championship and the Vance & Hines XR1200 Championship, as well as the second annual DRIFT BigM Superbike Super Celebrity Mega Kart Showdown, on the schedule. There will also be live music throughout the weekend and a major tribute to our armed forces in recognition of Memorial Day.
