KONI race Miller Motorsports Park UT 09/2008

In September last year, we were hired to crew a KONI car at Miller Motorsports Park (http://www.millermotorsportspark.com/) in Utah. We had never had the chance to work at that track, so we were happy for the opportunity.

We had a drive up with our new trailer that was filled with drama! We lost 5th gear on our truck and had to limp in to make the first track day!! We managed to get the truck fixed while there - of course that was a whole bunch more drama - but nevertheless fixed in time for the trip home.

The track is HUGE! We were glad we had our pit cart - we would have never made it anywhere on time...LOL

Our crew is meshing well. All the new guys are working hard to catch up to the established crew guys, and all the personalities are working well together. A good sign is the smiles throughout the weekend and the guys joking with each other.

Our team owner and his co-driver had never driven at Miller, and both were hard at work all weekend learning the best way around all 4.5 miles of track. We didn't podium, but we did drive the car back to the paddock! Sometimes that is just as exciting!

Can't wait for the next opportunity to race there - what a fabulous facility.
