Tooele County Has Big Time Sports Car Racing-This Weekend!
Tooele County has some "Big Time" sports car racing this weekend!
The Grand-Am Rolex series makes it's last stop of the year at Tooele County's own Miller Motorsports Park . The track went "hot" this morning at 8AM with practice and qualifying in five different classes of racing and doesn't stop today until after 6pm.
Tomorrow gets started early with MMP's "Motormouth" Celebrity go-cart challenge at 8AM. The winner of this race wins a $1000 donation to the charity of their choice.
Berna & I have been asked to race, and it's our hope to win and get the Tooele Valley Community Co-op/Baby Cupboard a much needed donation.
These aren't your usual "state fair" go carts. These carts are capable of speeds in excess of 70 MPH, and on the half mile professional track at MP are an absolute riot to drive!
After that, watch the worlds best sports car drivers try to capture the Rolex Championship in a 3hr sprint race.
Sunday, the K&N Nascar series takes to the track with stock cars on the 4.5 mile MMP road course, the longest in North America.
I know where I'll be the next 72 hours: Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele County!
For all of you sportscar buffs, and race fans in Salt Lake Valley, drive the short 20 plus miles out here and make a weekend of it.
It can be a family thing. Just take the freeway toward Wendover, turn left at the Tooele exit, but instead of going into Tooele City, take the right turn @ Stansbury Park toward Grantsville and then follow the signs to Miller Raceway (MMP)
Tell everyone you know, Tooele County has Big Time Sports Car Racing-This Weekend..
