MotoAmerica Adds Utah Circuit To 2016 Schedule

The MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Series will return to the newly dubbed Utah Motorsports Campus (formerly Miller Motorsports Park) in Toelle, Utah on June 23-25. The race fills in one of the last two rounds to be announced on the 2016 calendar and will be round seven of the nine-round championship.

A little different than the other rounds in the series, the three-day event will kick off on Thursday, June 23 and will conclude on Saturday, June 25 with the two featured MotoAmerica Superbike/Superstock 1000 races. Friday and Saturday will also feature the two MotoAmerica Supersport, Superstock 600 and KTM RC Cup classes.

"The circuit itself is one of the premier venues in the United States and the plans currently underway look to enhance that further," said MotoAmerica partner Chuck Aksland. "We think racing on Saturday will be a good change and we plan on giving race fans three solid days of quality on-track action. Salt Lake City and its surrounding area is a true destination spot and we are confident that this event will continue to grow year by year."

Monster Energy Graves Yamaha's Josh Hayes won both of the Superbike races in Utah in 2015 after two hotly contested battles with his teammate, 2015 MotoAmerica Superbike Champion Cameron Beaubier. Yoshimura Suzuki's Roger Hayden finished third in both of the races held in June.

Geely, the largest independent automotive company in China, recently reached an agreement with Tooele County in Utah to purchase Miller Motorsports Park and have renamed it Utah Motorsports Campus. The facility has hosted both MotoAmerica and World Superbike racing since opening in 2006.
