There is not a lot of betting that goes on in Utah, but Miller Motorsports Park has a good feeling about its upcoming World Superbike round. The only American venue on the WSBK calendar, track officials are hoping to see the 200 mph barrier be broken on Miller’s long straightaway by the production race machines. Standing over 3,500 feet long, Miller’s front straight makes for some daunting first-corner entries, which will challenge WSBK and AMA Pro Racing riders alike during the BigM Weekend.
If a rider breaks the 200 mph mark at Miller Motorsports Park, it would distinguish the track as the fastest natural-terrain road course in the United States. Hoping to promote that fact, MMP has launched the “Quest for 200” contest, where motorcycle race fans can win tickets for the 2013 World Superbike event, as well as prizes from Pirelli and Tissot Watches, by correctly guessing who will be first to crack 200 mph, and which rider will have the fastest trap speed at the end of the 2012 BigM race Weekend.
The speed can be set in any timed session throughout the weekend, including practice, provisional qualifying, Superpole or either of the two World Superbike races. The first person to provide the answer to “Who Will Be First?” (including the rider and his top speed) will receive a round-trip airline ticket to Salt Lake City from anywhere in the United States and three nights’ hotel accommodations, VIP tickets to the BigM Weekend including pit access. In addition, the winner will receive a set of motorcycle tires from Pirelli and a watch from Tissot.
The first person to provide the answer to “Who Will Be Fastest?” (including the rider and his top speed of the weekend) will receive VIP tickets to the BigM Weekend including pit access, plus a set of motorcycle tires from Pirelli and a watch from Tissot. If no rider manages to break the 200-mph mark during the weekend, none of the prizes will be awarded. If there is a tie in either contest, the winner will be determined by a randomized software program.
