Take off with Racing to the Stars

Posted: April 22, 2010 in Uncategorized

Clark Planetarium and Miller Motorsports Park have teamed up to present “Racing to the Stars,” a benefit event to support space and science education programs for Clark Planetarium.

On Saturday, June 19, 2010 the event kicks off at Miller Motorsports Park with family-friendly race activities, dinner, a model rocket demonstration by Utah Rocket Club and a star party.

Located in Tooele, UT, Miller Motorsports Park features lots of wide open track space and this event will have guests racing around on go karts, simulating a race in a Mustang FR500-s, testing their skills in the pit crew challenge and feeling the bumps in a guided jeep ride.

If you have an inner speed demon, this event will be a great way for you to see and feel the speed of the track. And, since this is a benefit for Clark Planetarium, you will be helping to fund programs like the teacher training workshops and the AstroVan educational outreach. Programs like these serve over 75,000 school children in Utah.

All access VIP tickets for the event are $100 per person and include admission to the park, access to the Larry H. Miller Total Performance Car Museum, dinner, model rocket demonstrations, an evening star party and one round of the following activities: Sim race, go-karting, pit crew challenge, jeep ride and the skid car.

A General Admission tickets are available for $30 per person and include admission to the park, access to the museum, dinner, rocket demonstrations and star party.

If you’re feeling really adventurous, bring your own car for Wintercross in June. The Wintercross option is available for an additional $100 when purchased in conjunction with either the VIP or General Admission pass.

BMW Motorcycles of Utah has also generously donated one of the new BMW S1000RR racing bikes which will be auctioned off at the event. The bike and accessories is valued at $20,000.

Tickets are available for purchase on our website, or for an additional fee at the gate the day of the event.
