During the fall of 2017 we were looking for a way to test cars and a light bulb went off above UMI owner Ryan Kirkwood’s head. Why not build our own test track? And while we’re at it, why not have some fun and give a once prominent landmark back to the community? It was then the vision for UMI Motorsports Park was born. Rockets, Port City’s and Lefthanders were replaced with a supercharged UMI LeMans, Corvettes, Camaros and Mustangs. Small block Chevy’s were pushed aside for 800 hp LS powerplants.
For 2018 and beyond we expect UMI Motorsports Park to host some really cool events on the ⅝ mile roval course, like the upcoming UMI Autocross Challenge and the groundbreaking $10k King of the Mountain. As for that dirt scraped off mentioned above – the “funnest” corner in autocross (an uphill elevation 180 from the infield to oval Turn 2) is built on top of that fast clay scraped off in 2010.
