Team Will Display Car and Race Transporter at Arena Saturday

SALT LAKE CITY -- As the regular season comes to a close for the Utah Jazz and the team moves into the NBA playoffs, racing season for Corsa Motorsports and the American Le Mans Series is just hitting its stride. Corsa Motorsports will set up shop outside the EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City for the Jazz's game against the Denver Nuggets on Saturday, April 12 in an effort to promote next month's race when the Series makes a turn for Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele.

"I love the American Le Mans Series and I want nothing more than to help it grow and create awareness in the Salt Lake City market about our team and the effort the Series is making at Miller Motorsports Park," said Steve Pruitt, team owner and principal. "By tapping into a solid fan base like that of the Utah Jazz, I think we can help strengthen the Larry H. Miller Dealerships Utah Grand Prix presented by The Grand and Little America Hotels and create more visibility for the facility and ALMS in addition to educating locals about this style of racing."

Corsa Motorsports will take its team transporter and its No. 18 F430 LMGT and No. 48 Ferrari F430 LMGT to the arena, where its set-up will be on display for the fans. Corsa will also provide the display for some of the Jazz's home playoff games as its racing schedule allows. Game time Saturday is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. MDT.

"Steve Pruitt and Corsa Motorsports have been a great supporter of Miller Motorsports Park and the Larry H. Miller Utah Grand Prix presented by The Grand and Little America Hotels," said Alan Wilson, CEO and General Manager of Miller Motorsports Park. "They are, for all intents and purposes, our 'home team' and part of the Miller Motorsports Park family. We appreciate them being part of our Miller Motorsports Park Night promotion at the EnergySolutions Arena, and I know the fans will be excited to see their beautiful Ferrari racing cars."

Corsa Motorsports narrowly missed the podium in its fourth-place effort at the Acura Sports Car Challenge of St. Petersburg last weekend. The team was the second-highest finishing Ferrari.

Miller Motorsports Park will host Round 4 of the American Le Mans Series Sunday, May 18 when cars take the track for the Larry H. Miller Dealerships Utah Grand Prix presented by The Grand and Little America Hotels. The 180-minute race is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. MDT.
