The Tooele County Commission is searching for a new operator of the Miller Motorsports Park, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.
With the Miller family set to stop operating the track and its facilities at the end of October this year, the county is keen to find a new business partner to lease the 500 acres of land to.
“Our major interest is to enter into a partnership, whether that be an outright sale or a lease” with an entity whose “core competency” is running a facility like the one the Millers are abandoning, said County Commissioner Sean Milne, while speaking to the The Salt Lake Tribune.
While the county has had some interest in the race track and its facilities, only a handful of the interested parties have shown the capability of running a business like Miller Motorsports Park, explained Milne.
Once a suitable partner is found, the hope from the Tooele County Commission is that there will be a seamless transition between MMP being run by the Miller family and whomever will be the next operator of the facility.
Even if a new operator is not ready by October, the County says it will bridge current businesses at the park with leases that will cover until a new operator is found.
Of course, the trick to the whole operation is finding a new business partner that can make Miller Motorsports Park profitable, something the Miller family was unable to do, which in-turn lead to their cessation of operations at the facility.
