Utah Motorsports Campus, formally Miller Motorsports Park is a state-of-the-art road racing facility for automobiles, motorcycles and go-karts located just 35 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City in Tooele, Utah. It is considered the finest facility of its type in North America. Opened in 2006, Miller Motorsports Park hosts many of the world’s most significant racing series, including the American Le Mans Series, Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series, NASCAR Grand National West Series, AMA Superbike Championship and, new for 2008, the FIM SUPERBIKE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, one of the top three racing series in the world.
In addition to the professional racing series that visit UMC, the track also has its own locally-based racing series for road racing cars and motorcycles, Supermoto motorcycles and karts (with competitor’s ages ranging from five to 65 years old). There is racing taking place almost every weekend between April and October.
The Ford Racing High Performance Driving School is designed for the high-performance driving enthusiast looking to gain seat time, track time and professional instruction in one of our specially prepared Miller Mustang GT’s. Utilizing one of three track configurations (East Course, West Course or Full Course), the One-Day Ford Racing High Performance Driving School will teach you the proper skills needed to understand the fundamentals of vehicle dynamics and basic car control. The One day course includes classroom sessions, skid pad instruction, downshifting exercises and corner control work with lead and follow sessions prior to track time.

The thundering stock cars of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West will headline the 6th annual Larry H. Miller Dealerships Utah Grand Prix at Miller Motorsports Park, joined by the SCCA Pro Racing World Challenge Championship, the SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am Championship, the IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge presented by Yokohama and the Pirelli Cup USA. Awesome cars, great racing at a fantastic facility and fun for the whole family!
This weekend is Round 7 of the eight-race 2009 Miller Park Racing Association (MPRA) series. The race will be held on outer track. The MPRA is a regional racing series created and sponsored by Miller Motorsports Park to build local and regional car racing. Miller Motorsports Park has organized, sanctioned and subsidized the cost of racing. Drivers will be competing for trophies and points toward the series championship.
The thundering stock cars of the NASCAR Camping World Series (formerly Grand National West Series) return to Miller Motorsports Park for a third year to tackle the demanding 3.08-mile Perimeter Course. These heavy cars are difficult to manhandle around a road course, and last year’s event was thrilling from start to finish. Don’t miss your chance to get the best of both worlds — stock cars and road racing!
The fourth annual visit to Miller Motorsports Park by the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series presented by Crown Royal Cask No. 16 brings a major change. The race distance has been shortened from 1000 kilometers to a two-hour-45 minute sprint race, which will bring an entirely new set of strategies into play. Teams will have to race hard from beginning to end, and work in “sprint” mode rather than “endurance” mode. As exciting as the longer races were, this year’s event should be a nail-biter from start to finish!
Recent developments in the XTRM AMA Pro Racing Supermoto Championship will put added emphasis on this weekend’s headline event in the third annual Cycle Fest presented by Bully Dog Technologies at Miller Motorsports Park.
Series organizers have announced that the scheduled season finale for the XTRM AMA Pro Racing Supermoto Championship at California’s Mammoth Mountain on September 20 has been canceled, and that this weekend’s event at Miller Motorsports Park will now be a season-ending double-header event. All three divisions (Supermoto Lites, Supermoto Premier and Supermoto Unlimited) will have two feature races on Sunday.
This will add more excitement to what was already going to be an action-packed weekend for two-wheeled enthusiasts.
On Saturday and Sunday, the historic racing machines of the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) will host the Bonneville Vintage Grand Prix on the East Course of the main track. Among the highlights will be a Le Mans-start race for Honda CB160s featuring former World Superbike Champion Doug Polen, and the always-amazing two-man sidecars, with the passenger (known as “the monkey”) shifting their body from side to side, sometimes hanging completely off the machine, to maximize traction through the corners.
While AHRMA is racing on the East Course, Miller Motorsports Park’s own amateur motorcycle road racing series, the Plaza Cycle Masters of the Mountains, will race on the West Course, featuring some of the top contemporary amateur racers from throughout the western United States.
Joining the pro Supermoto riders at the Miller Karting Complex’s state-of-the-art Supermoto course will be an amateur event on Saturday featuring the XTRM AMA Amateur Supermoto Championship along with MMP’s local Utah Supermoto Championship.
