Drive Away Hunger
Bring nonperishable food items to Miller Motorsports Park on Nov. 7, and you’ll be allowed to drive your street car three laps around MMP’s world-class, 4.5-mile race course behind a pace car, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Additional track time, in three-lap increments, will be available for a cash donation of $20. All proceeds will benefit the Utah Food Bank. John Larson, senior vice president and general manager, says, “This is a great chance for everyone to simultaneously satisfy their need for speed and our need to feed!” For more information, visit MillerMotorsportsPark.com.
