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.For more information on Miller Motorsports Park visit, www.millermotorsportspark.com.
