Days 15, 16, and 17 – the races

I won’t bore you with all the details about the races, suffice it to say I’m having a great time.  It’s been a long while since I’ve been to any pro racing, let alone a world series, and the sights and sounds are fantastic.  And Miller Motorsports is a great facility, you can get very close to the track and see so much from almost anywhere.  They had spectators in mind when they designed it and it shows.  And the racing’s good, too!

Saturday morning was cold - that's more snow falling on the hills. It got warmer each day with Monday in the 70's.

This is how close you can get to the action!

The midway, home of lots of swag.

Very nice!

The track's located in a nice valley west of Salt Lake City.

That blue thing on the horizon is the Great Salt Lake. The air is humid and salty enough around here to rust cars and anything else made of steel.

A cool V-strom in the parking lot. I want to try this on my bike!!

I’m headed back to the track for the final races, then a good night’s sleep.  Tomorrow begins the slog back home – making miles is the priority so that means Interstate highways, with some 2-lane thrown in where ever I can.  It’s 950 miles via the Interstates or 1200 miles avoiding them, hopefully I can have a good ride and get home in 3 days.  Time will tell.
