TOOELE VALLEY, Utah – On April 26, 2013, Miller Motorsports Park hosted an Open House to debut its brand-new motocross track, designed by master track builder Marc Peters for the inaugural Built Ford Tough Utah National, Round 11 of the 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, set to take place on Saturday, August 17. Chad Reed, the most successful international rider in the history of motocross, along with local up-and-coming rider Landen Powell, took to the track for some demonstration laps and the verdict was overwhelmingly positive.
"The track is fun!" exclaimed Reed, the 2009 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross 450 Class Champion. "You almost feel like you are at the Motocross Des Nations, whether it be Donington or Genoa, Italy, with this style of facility. For me, it was awesome. I had a blast out there!"
“I think the riders are going to love this layout,” said Peters, whose impressive layout will mark the first motocross national in Utah since 1973. “Once they get the top coat on the surface and rip it deep, this race will be like no other national out there, with an epic track surrounded by a beautiful facility.”
Here is a sneak peek of what the world’s fastest riders will be up against this August!
