Miller Motorsports Park, one of North America’s nicer and newer road course facilities is set to close at the end of the year, per multiple reports.

The road course – situated outside Salt Lake City, Utah in Tooele – has been on motorsports calendars since 2006 when the track opened.

Deseret News report was the first to indicate the track was closing, and the parent company, Larry H. Miller Group of Companies, released a statement on Friday confirming the news.

“On behalf of my family, I would like to thank all of those who have supported the track over the years, both locally and worldwide, for their enthusiasm and use of the facility,” owner Gail Miller said in the statement.

Larry H. Miller, a top Utah businessman, passed away in 2009.

The track will hold its final races this season before closing in October, per a report from Salt Lake City CBS affiliate KTVU.

The American Le Mans Series and GRAND-AM Rolex Series both held races there through 2010; the Pirelli World Challenge crowned its champions there last year and will hold an all-class weekend in August later this year.

Various NASCAR series have also competed at the facility.
