A Few Things to Remember

Racers
  • Make sure to purchase your 2016 license prior to your first event.
  • Make sure you have a current medical form in your NASA account, and remember if you are over 40, you must submit a one-time EKG per the medical form.
  • Check the dated parts of your safety equipment. Your helmet, harness, seat, window nets, and even some HANS have expiration dates, and need to meet the NASA rules.
Time Trialers
  • Make sure to purchase your 2016 license, and check your membership status. Licenses are based on calendar years, memberships are based on the month you started.
Annual Tech

Stay tuned while we update our local shops with new SFI certifications. They will be able to provide annual techs in advance to all race cars, and time trial cars that meet the requirements. We will publish a list of our certified annual shops soon. HPDE weekend techs can still be performed by your favorite ASE certified shops at any time!

NASA Utah’s Statement on the Decision to Vacate the Sale of MMP to Mitime Investments/Utah Motorsports Campus

On Dec. 17, the pending sale of Miller Motorsports Park to Mitime Investment was vacated by the Third District Court. NASA Utah believes this to be a temporary setback on the road to reopening our home track.

We wish to express our appreciation to the Tooele County Commission for its ongoing efforts and support to retain the facility as a viable racetrack, which is easily accessible for instructional events as well as amateur and professional racing.

We also wish to thank Mitime Investments and the Utah Motorsports Campus staff for its viable plan for the facility, which includes the potential to grow regional racing as well as offer pro-racing events to spectators in the region. We feel MiTime’s publicly stated vision, best represents a growing motorsports community that we are proud to be a part of.

We know that both the short- and long-term impacts of a drastic shift in facility programs will be felt by thousands of people, from local racers and shops to hotels and restaurants. NASA Utah continues to support Mitime Investments’ plans to create the Utah Motorsports Campus, and we respectfully request that the Tooele County Commission move forward decisively to ensure a viable legal solution that enables the Motorsports Park to continue to provide services to all of those who have enjoyed it since its inception.

NASA Utah is moving forward with preparations for a successful 2016 season. We will keep you updated as we learn more.

Thank you,
Matt Guiver
