Ski racing may be ending, but car racing is just getting started.
Miller Motorsports Park is holding the Utah Grand Prix from April 27–29. The park is kicking the racing season off with a bang for the 6th year in a row with six racing series with 13 races.
The main event is the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West, which is a developmental race series, mirrored by the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. These series bring together veteran knowledge with fresh talent for a mesh of skills. The races also mark one of four road races for stock car enthusiasts. And speaking of cars, John Larson, General manager of Miller Motorsports Park is thrilled by the promised spread.
“This year’s lineup offers an amazing variety of vehicles, from open-wheel formula cars to sports cars and NASCAR stock cars, with races on three different track configurations,” said Larson in a recent press release.
Racing enthusiasts may need to keep a checklist of all the cars. The SCC Pirelli World Challenge Championship is also holding races during the Utah Grand Prix. These races focus on street automobiles, specifically “showroom stock.” They’ll be stocking the Utah Grand Prix with everything from Corvettes and Vipers to Mustangs and Camaros.
Aside from the classy cars, Miller wlll also welcome some local drivers you should know. Pleasant Grove residents Madison Snow and his mother, racing champion Melanie Snow, will be competing in different classes. And the park’s director of performance schools, Grantsvile’s Dan McKeever, will try his hand in the Pirelli World Challenge Championship.
The park will be in full working order during the event with karting at the Miller Kart Track and rides on their zip line.
Admission for the event is free on Friday, $25 on Saturday and $10 on Sunday. Kids up 12 are free all weekend long. Look for tickets online or call 435-277-7223.
