Another outdoor SX track.

I'm sure they own a water truck.

Correct. It's a SX track, spectators in the stands.

I'm really trying to be optimistic about a new Utah track, I love Utah, wonderful motorcycle country, awesome roads, great dual sport riding and lots of places for a natural terrain motocross track near Salt Lake City.
And maybe they will build something great on Miller Motorsports Park.

But every time I see that track I lose all hope.

Hopefully a fleet of water trucks. This track could be a game changer. Those sections at the 1:02 mark in the video look a little sketchy.

Just to let you know - Miller are making alot of Trackside spectator areas available also. With the Facility, the Stands and the Trackside Viewing this should be great for the Spectators.

Hope so, I'm trying to be optimistic.

Flug,

The MX kid at work is amazed at your pic (and rightfully so). He can't believe that you aren't selling those to the mags.

Let's hit the road, I'll be your manager!

A word from the track...

Just to clear up any misinformation:

--The track you saw in the video will not look like that this weekend. We have trucked in 200 truckloads of river-bottom dirt and sand to put on top of the base surface. We're laying that down, ripping it in and having an amateur practice day on Friday to get it worked in real nice.

--You can sit in the grandstands if you want, but we're allowing people to stand along the armco all around the MX track. If it's dirt in your face that you want, we can help you with that. You can also race karts on our excellent karting track, ride our zipline and visit our museum full of Cobras, Shelby Mustangs and Ford GT40s.

--And yes, this is not your traditional MX track. We have worked with MX Sports and Alli Sports to create something that's kind of in between SX and MX. This is what we were asked to do, and we are trying to do the best we can. We are COMPLETELY stoked about hosting MX, and we want everyone to come out and have a bunch of fun with us. Obviously, we've never done one of these events before and we're on a very steep learning curve. There will, no doubt, be some mistakes made and lessons learned this year. We will try to minimize those and put on the best event we can for the riders and the fans. I know some people are saying, "Oh, it's the death of MX!" It's not. It's just one venue that's a little different, and we're trying to provide the best of both worlds not only for the riders and fans, but the sponsors and TV crews too.

Please give us a shot. We appreciate the support, and we promise to do the best we possibly can.

Thanks,
Miller Motorsports Park

So cool to clear that up here!!

I know a photog that could be "persuaded" to come out and work the weekend for you.
