Salt Lake City offers a variety of outdoor activities for offroad enthusiasts. On Saturday morning we will leave the comforts of the convention center and head to the Utah Motorsports Campus that is a auto, offroad, motorcycle, bicycle and kart racing facility that has multiple tracks including a dirt short course track used for Lucas Oil Offroad Racing and a man-made rock crawling area where W.E. Rock Rock Crawling Nationals have been held multiple times.
We have a full day planned with different opportunities to try something new and step outside of your comfort zone thanks to the Ford Performance Racing School. We will be split into groups and rotate through different stations. Learning is at the base of our day, but I guarantee there will be some huge smiles as you put your hands on steering wheels and try a new technique, take a moment to understand the dynamics of the vehicle in different settings, and appreciate the museum of historical cars and trucks.
Once our day is over, we will be shuttled to another location for a very special evening of dirt racing. As soon as final details are confirmed, we will release this wild adventure!

The track measures 12.42 miles, over 156 turns, climbing 4,720 ft from the start at Mile 7 on Pikes Peak Highway, to the finish at 14,110 ft, on grades averaging 7.2%. It used to consist of both gravel and paved sections, however as of August 2011, the highway is fully paved and as a result all subsequent runnings will be on asphalt from start to finish. Wikipedia
