Miracle Motorsports gears up for round four of the Grand-Am Road Racing Series.

April 15, 2002-Round four of the Grand-American Rolex SportsCar series will be hosted at the Phoenix International Raceway, beginning April 18, 2002. The United Auto 200 will take place Saturday, April 20, 2002 at 7 pm Mountain Time.

Phoenix resident, Buddy Rice, will accompany team owner/driver John Macaluso (Winter Haven, FL/Old Forge, NY), in the #6 Miracle Motorsports entry. The driving team of Macaluso and Rice will pilot the Ford powered Riley and Scott SRP around the 11 turn, 1.5 mile track, utilizing the oval as well as the infield road course.

Rice joined Macaluso and the Miracle Motorsports team earlier this season during the Nextel 250 weekend from Homestead, FL. The duo ran in the top three for more than half of the race, until a power steering problem occurred and forced the team back several laps, still, however, finishing a remarkable 4th place.
