MotoAmerica Set For Return To Utah

Posted:

The MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Series will return to the spectacular state of Utah in 2016 for the Utah MotoAmerica Superbike Championship at the newly named Utah Motorsports Campus (formerly Miller Motorsports Park).

The race will be round seven of the nine-round MotoAmerica series.

The Utah MotoAmerica Superbike Championship will begin on Thursday, June 23 and will conclude on Saturday, June 25 with the two featured MotoAmerica Superbike races. Friday and Saturday will also feature the two MotoAmerica Supersport, Superstock 600 and KTM RC Cup classes. Superstock 1000, meanwhile, will continue to race within the Superbike class with both those races scheduled for Saturday.

"The circuit itself is one of the premier venues in the United States and the plans currently underway look to enhance that further," said MotoAmerica partner Chuck Aksland. "The nature of the track can produce some great racing and it's a favorite track among the riders and teams.

"It's a real challenge with the variety of corners and high speeds obtained down the straight. We think racing on Saturday will be a good change and we plan on giving race fans three solid days of quality on-track action.

"Salt Lake City and its surrounding area is a true destination spot and we are confident that this event will continue to grow year by year."

Monster Energy Graves Yamaha's Josh Hayes won both of the Superbike races in Utah in 2015 after two hotly contested battles with his teammate, 2015 MotoAmerica Superbike Champion Cameron Beaubier. Yoshimura Suzuki's Roger Hayden finished third in both of the races held in June.

"We are delighted that Utah Motorsports Campus will be part of the 2016 MotoAmerica championship," said Alan Wilson, president of Utah Motorsport Campus. "Our track has historically been very popular among motorcycle racers, providing many memorably competitive events. We look forward to more of the same in 2016."

Geely, the largest independent automotive company in China, recently reached an agreement with Tooele County in Utah to purchase Miller Motorsports Park and have renamed it Utah Motorsports Campus. The racetrack, which is located on the outskirts of Salt Lake City, has hosted both MotoAmerica and World Superbike racing since opening in 2006.
