Racing to the Stars 2011 Featured

IMG_2265-300x202Last year Clark Planetarium and Miller Motorsports Park teamed up for a unique opportunity for families to enjoy race track activities and a star party through Racing to the Stars.

The event was a success and we are pleased to announce we will be hosting the event again this year on Saturday, June 4, 2011 at Miller Motorsports Park from 5 – 10 p.m. If you’ve ever wanted to ride next to a professional race car driver or even race your own car, this event has the thrills of high speed, quick turns and rockets (yes, rockets).

Utah Rocket Club will be joining us again this year to showcase model, sport and amateur rocketry. After race activities and rocketry demonstrations, we will host a live auction featuring a Triumph Daytona 675 racing bike and accessories generously donated by BMW Motorcycles of Utah. Then, we will gather under the night sky for a star party on the clubhouse lawn.

All proceeds from this event will help Clark Planetarium to provide over 75,000 students each year with hands on learning activities that help to foster a wonder for learning about space science.

Purchase a VIP ticket for your chance to ride in a Mustang with a professional race car driver.

All access VIP tickets for the event are $100 online and include admission to the park, dinner, access to the Larry H. Miller Total Performance Car Museum, model rocket demonstrations, an evening star party and one round of the following activities: Sim race, go-karting, Jeep ride, skid car and zipline.

General admission tickets are $30 online and include admission to the park, dinner, access to the museum, model rocket demonstrations and star party.
