Miller motorsport park in Tooele Utah is up and the cars are running, also during certain times you can your car onto the track or test other cars as well!

The road course is a 4.5 mile long, 40-50 foot wide, 24-turn layout that provides a variety of cornering speeds, from 50 mph to well over 100 mph. The fastest cars and motorcycles will approach 200 miles per hour on the track's 50 foot wide, 3500 foot main straight.

The course has four possible configurations. The 2.24 mile East course is a highly technical challenge suited to lower-powered, better-handling cars and motorcycles, while the 2.2 mile West course is fitting for higher-powered, larger cars and motorcycles.

The East course has as many as seven major overtaking areas, and 14 corners, including the three-turn esses, which have significant elevation changes. The feature corner on the East course is the final turn, a 50 foot-wide, 9º banked sweeper that leads onto the main straight. It is designed to create last-minute overtaking challenges before the race to the finish line.

The West course is notable for a sequence of three very fast (100 mph+) corners which lead to the heaviest-braking and slowest corner on the track, turn W5, whose 45 foot-wide entrance encourages overtaking. The rest of the West course features several multiple-radius and complex corners designed to challenge drivers' skills.

Miller Motorsports Park's longest configuration, the Full course, has a character completely different from either of the two shorter layouts. In this 4.5 mile configuration, speeds will be extremely high both at the end of the long main straight and through the daunting sequence of turns that comprise the first elements of the East side of the course, where cornering speeds will approach 150 mph.

A fourth configuration, the 3.06 Outer course, eliminates the entire infield section and promises to be one of the fastest track layouts in North America.

While the track is basically flat, Miller Motorsports Park 's designers have incorporated several significant elevation changes in order to add character, challenge, and unparalleled sightlines for spectators.

The combination of potential layouts, each with its own distinct characteristics, enables Miller Motorsports Park to provide challenges for drivers and riders of all skill levels while simultaneously providing spectators exceptional race action.

take a look, there is also a 3D view of the map (kinda low quality) but none the less.
