I'd almost bet money the county tried to extort way more money out of them for a lease renewal ("because racetracks make lots of money and you can afford it!") and Miller just said "no." Government killing the golden goose yet again if so.The Larry H. Miller Group of Companies will not renew its lease with Tooele County and Miller Motorsports Park will close.
The summer schedule will continue as planned then the park will close at the end of the season on October 31, 2015.
?On behalf of my family, I would like to thank all of those who have supported the track over the years, both locally and worldwide, for their enthusiasm and use of the facility,? said Gail Miller, owner of the Larry H. Miller Group.
The 511-acre facility opened in April 2006. It hosted seasonal automobile, motorcycle, kart, off-road, bicycle races and is the longest track in North America.
Major events hosted at the park include: NASCAR K&N Pro Series West Utah Grand Prix (2007-14), FIM Superbike World Championship (2008-12), American Le Mans Series (2006-10), Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series (2006-10), Pirelli World Challenge (2006-08, 2010-12, 2014-15), and the AMA Superbike Championship (2006-08, 2011-13).
