Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele Valley, Utah

May. 28, 2009 By Stephen Clark

Nestled in the Tooele Valley just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah, Miller Motorsports Park is one of the premier motorsports facilities in the world. The park consists of a 3-mile road course that can be ran in four different configurations, and then there is a top-notch karting facility, and they have recently built an off-road park for those who like to take their motorsport fun away from the asphalt.

 

Miller Motorsports Park is a state-of-the-art facility, and when these guys decided to do something they always build it to a very high standard. The off-road park is no different.

The park is manmade and it started as a completely flat piece of desert on the northwest corner of the facility. Dirt was used to form obstacles and then sprayed with concrete to seal it and give it a rock-type texture. There are also some natural rocks that have been integrated into the park as well.

“You can really get to know your Jeep in a controlled environment, allowing you to test your Jeep to every level it has and find your limitations,” said Miller Off-Road manager John Williams. “It better prepares you for off-roading in places like Moab or other uncontrolled environments.”

For $35 per vehicle and an additional $5 per spotter, people can bring their own vehicles to the park and use it all day. Miller also has a fleet of six Jeep Rubicons that are built for rock-crawling and available for use in Miller’s training classes. These training classes teach students how to operate a Jeep correctly in an off-road environment and tech students how to operate the lockers, etc. The off-road park is also used as part of some of Miller’s Corporate packages, where people can come to the facility for the day and experience a whole range of motorsport activities. For example, drive 140 mph in a Miller Mustang on the road course, and follow it up with a spin on the kart track, and then finish off with a slower, more technical drive on the off-road course.

Miller spared no expense building their six Jeep Rubicons specifically for rock-crawling use. The Jeeps feature Terraflex long-arm kits, BFGoodrich tires, black rock wheels, superwinch winches, expedition 1 front and rear bumpers, Tom Wood drive line, West Coast differential rings and pinion with 5:38 gears.
