Miller Motorsports Park

Well, today was a fery easy day, riding-wise, having ridden only 107 miles. We rode around a while looking for the local BMW dealership for oil for Gary's 1200GS. After several phone calls and detailed information, we found it. The reason the GPSs would not find it was that it is located in North Salt Lake City, and we were looking in Salt Lake City, an entirely differet place!

Then rode to Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Ut. The park was not hard to find, and we bought tickets and went inside the facility.

All in all, I don't like it. It's flat as a pancake and BIG. At 4.5 miles, it's a long track, and with it being so flat, it's hard to see much of the track. The facilities are pretty nice--the place is in its second year, so it's well maintained. One of the strange features is that the racers ride through the same area as the spectators looking around the place; someone's going to get hurt by unknowingly stepping in front of a racer. Bad layout.

The races were mixed. The Superbike race was boring. Spies ran away from the entire field, and Maladin was second and way in front of #3, Zemke. Boring. Race two, the Formula Extreme was better.

It was HOT! Somewhere around 95-98 degrees and no shade anywhere except the stands (and we didn't have tickets for the stands). We were HOT!

Nothing else important happened, so I'll stop.

Tomorrow back to Miller Motorsports Park
