***Richard Antinucci, Super Trofeo veteran and ex-Indy Lights driver, moved over from the No. 69 O’Gara Motorsport Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 into the team’s No. 50 car this weekend, replacing Frankie Muniz, who was listed on the pre-event entry list. Although he changed cars, he had the measure of the field in Saturday’s Round 1.

***Muniz, the actor, drummer and past Formula Atlantic driver, was due to race this weekend in the No. 50 Lamborghini but did not appear. Muniz had one prior Atlantic start at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in 2008, when he finished 13th.

***Matt Halliday, a name somewhat familiar to a U.S. audience from past races in Champ Car and Indy Lights in the 2000s, joined up as part of the O’Gara lineup last-minute. He replaces Antinucci in sharing the team’s No. 69 Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2, with team principal Tom O’Gara.

***Jim Norman, who will co-drive with son Josh in the No. 71 BAD Lambo Racing (Park Place) Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2, will have his car carry additional support from the Children’s Tumor Foundation throughout 2015.

***Prestige Performance driver John DiFiore, who runs in the No. 10 Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2, is one of several drivers in the field making his first series start this weekend.

***New Strategic Wealth Racing driver Corey Lewis will pull double duty between his No. 36 Porsche Cayman in Continental Tire ST and his No. 29 Change Racing Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America.
