During the September 14-15th weekend, Miller Motorsports Park hosted the 2013 iON Camera Utah Grand Prix.
This year’s UGP featured the return of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West, as well as the Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy USA. The newly formed Discount Tire/Air Power Invitational series joined the party this year.
While NASCAR is considered a “stock” car series (the term “stock” being used lightly), the Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy USA is a Porsche GT3 Cups spec series and Discount Tire/Air Power Invitational is a Porsche + anything else series.
A few words can describe the weekend. LOUD and WET. It rained – A LOT. So much so, that the qualifying session for NASCAR was flat out canceled. While the the two other series seemed to relish running in the rain. I must say, it was impressive to see the amount of fans that braved the elements to catch some of the best road racing that the state of Utah has to offer.
We would like to thank the fine folks of Miller Motorsports Park for all their help over the weekend!
