The MotoAmerica Championship represents the top level of motorcycle road racing in North America. It serves as our national championship, similar to those run in other countries such as Spain, England, Japan, France, Australia, etc. There are only two steps above a national championship, those being the Superbike World Championship and the MotoGP World Championship.
MotoAmerica and its teams and riders have been a fixture at Utah Motorsports Campus since the track was opened as Miller Motorsports Park in 2006. Many of the world's top riders and teams have competed here over the years, including such internationally-renowned riders as Mat Mladin, Ben Spies, Josh Hayes, Cameron Beaubier, Toni Elias and many more.
This year's appearance for MotoAmerica in Utah will take place over the weekend of July 20-22. It will be the sixth round of the 10-round championship, so the title battles should be in full swing. The MotoAmerica Championship of Utah will feature five classes: the headlining Motul Superbike Championship for modified 1000cc bikes; the Supersport Championship for modified 600cc bikes; the Liqui Moly Junior Cup for small-bore sport bikes (replaces the KTM RC Cup series); the Twins Cup (new series for modified twin-cylinder bikes); and the Stock 1000 Championship (for stock 1000cc bikes).
The tentative schedule for the MotoAmerica Championship of Utah includes practice and qualifying on Friday, with free admission for all spectators, with more qualifying and a couple of races on Saturday and the remainder of the races on Sunday.
If you've never experienced a top-level Superbike race, you owe it to yourself to see, hear and feel these amazing machines for yourself. The fastest bikes will approach 190-200 mph at the end of the 0.75-mile front straight heading into Turn 1 on our 3.048-mile Outer Course, leaning over so far to grab that last millimeter of traction that they will literally drag their elbow and knee on the pavement. Multiply that image by 25-30 bikes, and you begin to realize the level of excitement that is MotoAmerica Superbikes.
The MotoAmerica Championship of Utah is a family-friendly event, with plenty to do for everyone. There will be autograph sessions with the riders, a variety of yummy food options, lots of displays and vendors and the UMC Kart Center will be open for kart rentals throughout the weekend.
Tickets for the MotoAmerica Championship of Utah are currently on sale, starting at $39/day and $69/weekend for adults. Kids 12 and under will be admitted free of charge. There are also numerous RV, camping and VIP options available.

UMC Pit Stop Challenge
We have been offering our own corporate team-building program, the UMC Pit Stop Challenge, for the past seven years. This involves your group being broken into teams, who are charged with performing a simulated pit stop on an actual NASCAR stock car. Participants must assign tasks to team members including operating the jack, operating the air-gun wrench and taking off the old wheel/replacing it with a new wheel. Once a team performs the initial pit stop, they review their performance and make adjustments to personnel assignments or task performance, and repeat the exercise. The improvements in the second attempt are obvious and enlightening, and it provides a great, action-packed, exciting way to encourage team-building.
If you want to create your own Utah corporate training event, either on your own or with a consulting company, UMC can tailor an event for groups ranging in size from 10 to 10,000, with exciting interactive experiences, catering to meet any price point, a variety of meeting or hospitality spaces and unique custom touches that are only limited by your imagination.

Obstacle races have been a part of competitive sports since the 1800s, with some forms of the sport dating back to the earliest Olympic Games. And UMC is “the” place to hold an Obstacle Race in Utah.
These sorts of events have become very popular in recent years, not only in North America but internationally. The recent trend of obstacle races seems to have originated with the Tough Guy competition in 1987. That started a trend that has grown incredibly since then. Approximately one million people registered to participate in obstacle races in the United States in 2011, and that number increased to 4.5 million in 2015, 5.6 million in 2016 and over 6 million in 2017.
These types of events are very popular in Utah, where outdoor activity, fitness, and adventure play a large part in the lifestyles of the state’s residents. Utah Obstacle Races routinely draw large entries and provide a wonderful competitive challenge for those looking to test their mettle and expand their boundaries. Another benefit of Obstacle Races is the opportunity for groups of friends or co-workers to compete as teams to improve their camaraderie and communication.
Utah Obstacle Races at UMC
Utah Motorsports Campus is a perfect venue to host a Utah Obstacle Race. In recent years, we have hosted the Mud Run, the BattleFrog Endurance Race Series, the BlackLight Run and the Terrain Race, all of which were very well received and attended, with thousands of enthusiastic athletes descending on UMC to see how they stack up against the competition.
Our 511-acre campus provides a large variety of surfaces and terrain types that lend themselves to such competitions, including our paved racetrack and large parking lots, large expanses of dirt (that can be flooded for mud terrain), and a rock-crawling course. Our expert Event Planning staff has significant experience in organizing Utah Obstacle Races and would be happy to discuss organizing such an event with you.
For a Utah corporate event, companies have more options than in some other places. Traditionally, golf outings have been the most popular venue for corporate events. But, let’s face it: golf is boring, right?
We know businesses have been doing corporate outings for clients and employees since the first company was started. The formula is pretty simple: a group activity that engages all participants and encourages teamwork, camaraderie, and fellowship, with appropriate meeting spaces and great food and beverages.
Utah Motorsports Campus can tailor a Utah corporate event for groups ranging in size from 10 to 10,000, with exciting interactive experiences, catering to meet any price point, a variety of meeting or hospitality spaces and unique custom touches that are only limited by your imagination.

And they will most definitely not be bored!
Group Karting can be the cornerstone of a Utah corporate event your group will talk about for years to come. All group and corporate events use our go-karts with speeds up to 50 mph. It’s great for team-building, birthday and bachelor parties, family outings, building business relationships or rewarding employees. We have multiple group options to choose from to fit your specific needs. You never really know your friends or colleagues until you trade a little paint with them on the kart track!
The UMC Kart Center has a fleet of Polaris Ace 570 ATVs that are available for group off-road experiences, which makes for a unique Utah corporate event. Your group will drive these thrilling machines on UMC’s Off Road Short Course, the same one used by the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series.
Group Simulation Races
One of the newest additions at UMC, and a perfect activity for a Utah corporate event is our bank of four state-of-the-art racing simulators at the UMC Kart Center. These are Sim Experience machines running full-motion iRacing software, with three 50-inch screens per unit. They are the most advanced public-access racing simulators in North America, and exactly the same units as those used by professional racing drivers for training. Let us pit your guests against each other for a thrilling virtual racing experience.
