Utah’s Miller Motorsports Park Closing

The Miller Motorsports Park will be closing its doors October 2015, ending a dream hatched by the late Larry H. Miller. Last Friday The Larry H. Miller Group Cos. released a statement announcing that it would not renew its lease on the 500-acre property in between Tooele and Grantsville, Utah.

Complimented as one of the finest facilities in the country by the auto racing community, Utah’s Miller Motorsports Park opened its doors in 2006 and has been a major tourist draw for Tooele County ever since. The closing leaves the future of the park unclear and will surely be devastating for both auto sport fanatics and the surrounding counties alike.

Cadillac is following up the CTS-V with a truly beautiful, but beastly ride. One that is trying to take down the BMW M3 and M4. The all new luxury sport 2016 Cadillac ATS-V coming in at $61,460 is also cheaper out the door than that of its Beemer counterparts.

The surprises don’t stop there. The ATS-V comes with a standard light weight carbon fiber hood. The chassis has been re-done to increase overall stiffness by 25 percent, with new gusseting

The Modern SUV is such a wonder nowadays. They come in all kinds of flavors and fulfill many kinds of purpose. They have all but completely replaced the full size sedan, are slowly eating away the midsize sedan segment, came into the compact segment, and have recently been replacing the sports sedan. The Range Rover Sport, when introduced, was an early pioneer into the segment, some had come before, but the sport solidified it into the mainstream. Lately, however, the Sport while quite good, has fallen into the bottom, smothered by X5M minivans, and AMG G-Wagen farm equipment. Land Rover has bitten back with the new Range Rover Sport SVR.

How does one make an SVR Range Rover? Land Rover has discovered, by taking the little red chili pepper of a Porsche, and shoving it directly up the posterior of the Ole’ Range Rover lighting a “Proverbial fire” up its ass. No, really. Power
