In yet another sign that the new MotoAmerica/KRAVE Group are working hard to get professional roadracing back to full health, the organization that only just took control of the series back in September of last year announced that it has added a round at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah for 2015. After the facility was dropped from the schedule last year when it couldn't reach an agreement with the previous owners of the AMA series, professional motorcycle roadracing will return to Miller on June 26-28, 2015 with a full schedule of MotoAmerica races planned for the weekend. This brings the MotoAmerica series up to eight confirmed rounds in 2015, with a support race at the World Superbike Championship round at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca still in the planning stages. The MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Series will be televised on the CBS Sports Network.

"The racers and teams have nothing but good things to say about Miller Motorsports Park and we're happy to have them on our schedule for 2015," said MotoAmerica president and three-time 500cc Wayne Rainey. "Miller gives us another round in the western half of the country so it's good for our fans in places like Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado and, of course, Utah. I hope those fans make the trip to what is truly a top-notch racetrack in a spectacular part of the country."

It's not as if Miller Motorsports Park management had to be forced to accept having a MotoAmerica race back at their facility. "We are very excited to be a part of the inaugural season of the MotoAmerica Road Racing Series," said Brian Smith, General Manager of Miller Motorsports Park. "Most of the teams and riders are familiar faces to us here, so it will be great to have them back again. The organization looks well positioned to lead North American professional motorcycle road racing into the future, and we look forward to a great partnership."
