2011 Miller World Superbiike

The upcoming BigM Weekend presented by Lucas Oil at Miller Motorsports Park, scheduled for May 28-30 World Sueprbike, is shaping up to be even bigger than anticipated.

Jason Britton, perhaps the world’s most popular stunt motorcyclist due to his massive exposure with television programs on SPEED Channel, in movie stunt work and on home videos, will be performing throughout the World Superbike weekend with his Team No Limit teammate, Eric Hoenshell.

Jason Britton says: “Eric and I are very excited to be part of The BigM Weekend at Miller Motorsports Park. We look forward to meeting and performing for our fans and fellow motorcycle enthusiasts. It’s all about the passion on two wheels! See you at the races!”

Britton and Hoenshell will perform on-track exhibitions twice each day, during the lunch hour and at the end of the day, on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. In addition, Britton will appear at the pre-race party at Honda Suzuki of Salt Lake, 2354 S. State Street in Salt Lake City, on Friday evening at 6 p.m., and at the Fan Party in the paddock at Miller Motorsports Park between 5 and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday evening prior to that evening’s concert, which features Dierks Bentley, Sawyer Brown and Reckless Kelly.

Additional stunt bike exhibitions will be performed by Chris Pfeiffer and Chris “Teach” McNeil, both of whom represent BMW Motorrad. They will be performing in the Paddock Zone throughout the weekend.

Also, the 2011 Miller World Superbike events lineup for Sunday night’s concert has been finalized with the addition of Blue Oyster Cult, who will perform in addition to the already-announced Creedence Clearwater Revisited.

For nearly three decades, Blue Oyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, New York-based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. The group is well known for songs including “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper,” “Burnin’ for You,” “Godzilla,” “Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll,” “Veteran of the Psychic Wars,” “Astronomy” and “This Ain’t the Summer of Love.” They have sold over 24 million albums worldwide – including 7 million in the US.

The BigM Weekend presented by Lucas Oil at Miller Motorsports Park over Memorial Day weekend, May 28-30, will feature the fifth round of the 2011 FIA Superbike World Championship, making their only appearance in the Western Hemisphere in their fourth annual visit to Utah. Support races from AMA Pro Road Racing will include the National Guard Superbike Championship, the Daytona SportBike Championship, the Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport Championship and the Vance & Hines XR1200 Championship. There will also be a major tribute to our armed forces in recognition of Memorial Day.
