AMA Adds Miller Motorsports Park Test

AMA Road Racing

In response to the results of a poll issued last week to all members of the AMA Pro Road Racing paddock, AMA Pro Racing has added an official two-day test to the existing 2011 schedule.

The test will be held at Tooele, Utah’s famed Miller Motorsports Park on May 2 and 3 and will be open to any rider pre-entered for the May 28-30 AMA Pro Road Race event at MMP.

David Atlas (AMA Pro Racing C.O.O.) says: "We’re always mindful of the need to keep costs down for our participants, but as it was clear many had a strong interest in seeing this test conducted, we released the poll to collect more precise information about where the paddock stood on the matter.

"The results were decidedly in favor of adding Miller Motorsports Park to the official testing schedule, and doing so represents our commitment to remain responsive to the desires of our AMA Pro competitors."

The official AMA Pro test at Miller Motorsports Park will run from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days, with each day comprising five 50-minute AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike/Daytona SportBike sessions and four 50-minute AMA Pro SuperSport/Vance & Hines XR1200 sessions.

Competitors may begin move-in at 5 p.m. May 1 and will have access to the venue’s garage and paddock-camping facilities.

AMA Pro Road Racing’s May 28-30 race weekend at Miller Motorsports Park marks a return to the stunning venue after a two-year hiatus. For event and ticket information, visit millermotorsportspark.com; for complete AMA Pro information, visit AMAProRacing.com.
