Miller Motorsports Park has announced its schedule of events for 2014 – and AMA Superbike racing isn’t a part of it. The track in Tooele, Utah, will, however, still host a round of the Lucas Oils Pro Motocross Championship on August 23.

“We are very excited about our 2014 schedule,” said John Larson, General Manager of Miller Performance, in a press release. “We offer something for just about everyone with an interest in racing, from off-road trucks to motocross, road racing cars and motorcycles and karting. We’re coming off a great season in 2013, and we’re looking forward to more of the same next year.”

As far as motorcycle road racing goes, Miller will offer up Bike Fest, July 26-27, which will feature WERA racing and the Utah Sport Bike Association’s Masters of the Mountains Series. The track will also run U.S. Pro Supermoto on its Supermoto track.

Miller – arguably one of the most popular tracks with riders in the series – has hosted AMA Superbike races and/or World Superbike racing since it opened in 2006.

With Barber Motorsports Park recently announcing its AMA Superbike round for June 21-22, the series currently has five rounds scheduled. With Laguna Seca and Mid-Ohio working out their date conflict, it’s highly likely that Laguna will again offer up the AMA package as a support class for its World Superbike round in July. That would mean the series – thus far – would feature six races.

The series schedule at this point is as follows:

March 14-15 – Daytona International Speedway, Daytona Beach, Florida

May 30-June 1 – Road America, Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin

June 20-21 – Barber Motorsports Park, Birmingham, Alabama

July 12-13 – Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Monterey, California

July 19-20 – Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Lexington, Ohio

September 13-14 – New Jersey Motorsports Park, Millville, New Jersey
