MotoAmerica, the new home for the AMA Superbike Series, and sanctioned by the AMA and FIM North America announced Wednesday that Miller Motorsports Park in Toole, UT will host a race in 2015.
Details from the Press Release:
COSTA MESA, CA, JAN. 7, 2015 - MotoAmerica, the new home of the AMA Superbike Series, has announced that Miller Motorsports Park has been added to the 2015 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Series with the popular facility in Toole, Utah, set to host a full slate of MotoAmerica races, June 26-28.
The fast and flowing racetrack in Utah wasn't a part of the AMA Superbike Championship in 2014, but returns after hosting a total of six AMA Superbike weekends since opening in 2006. Miller Motorsports Park also played host to the World Superbike Championship from 2008 to 2012.
Monster Graves Yamaha's Josh Herrin and Yoshimura Suzuki's Martin Cardenas split Superbike victories at Miller the last time a Superbike National was held there in 2013.
"The racers and teams have nothing but good things to say about Miller Motorsports Park and we're happy to have them on our schedule for 2015," said MotoAmerica president and three-time 500cc Wayne Rainey. "Miller gives us another round in the western half of the country so it's good for our fans in places like Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado and, of course, Utah. I hope those fans make the trip to what is truly a top-notch racetrack in a spectacular part of the country."
The Miller Motorsports Park staff is also eager and ready to host a round of the championship.
"We are very excited to be a part of the inaugural season of the MotoAmerica Road Racing Series," said Brian Smith, General Manager of Miller Motorsports Park. "Most of the teams and riders are familiar faces to us here, so it will be great to have them back again. The organization looks well positioned to lead North American professional motorcycle road racing into the future, and we look forward to a great partnership."
The Miller Motorsports Park round, like the rest of the MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Series, will air on the CBS Sports Network.
