Miller-Motorsports-Motocross-Video-7-3-13TOOELE 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.”

Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey was again part of a victorious Team USA that claimed the prestigious Chamberlain Trophy at the Motocross of Nations for the seventh year in a row today.

The 2011 AMA Supercross and Motocross runner-up and former double Champion helped his country to the top step of the podium in a close finish to the 65th edition, run under showery skies and in front of a noisy, passionate and cosmopolitan 68,000 crowd at St Jean D’Angely in France.

Dungey scored second and third in his two motos to win the MX1 class and assist enormously with the points score for the defending Champions. It represented his third appearance in the Stars and Stripes colours and now involves a perfect 100% record. The rutty hard-pack was even more difficult when intermittent heavy showers made the dirt rough and slippery. Conquering the conditions for a landmark achievement was Dungey’s team-mate Brett Metcalfe whose seventh and 10th positions in the MX Open category hoisted Australia onto the podium for the first time ever in the history of the competition.
