Ian James and Miracle Motorsports Wrap Up Season By Clinching 2004 LMP2 Championship

Ian James had enough of a lead in the LMP2 class driver standings that he would have to have a total disaster of a day to lose the title to Clint Field and Robin Liddell. Despite some problems during the race, the Miracle Motorsports Courage C65-AER completed enough of the race to score points and give James the class driving title.

"I'm just so happy to win the championship," said James. "I love this series, I love these cars. I'd love to come back next year. This is the greatest show in motorsports. It was a great opportunity to do this with the American Le Mans Series."

Field and Liddell, with third driver Rick Sutherland, scored the race win in the Intersport Racing Lola B2K/40-Judd.

Chris McMurry, Bryan Willman and Jeff Bucknum finished second in class in the Miracle team's Lola B2K/40-AER, while James and Gue finished third. Gue finished the race in a sand trap in turn five after being hit from behind by another car.
