TRACK RESURFACE 2021
The owner/partners of MPH made a huge investment in the future of road racing in central Nebraska with the October 2021 repaving project. The entire 2.15-mile, 13-turn road course, along with pit entrance, pit road and pit exit have all been completely repaved with a high-tech polymer asphalt.
Before the old (original) pavement was torn up, the crew from Werner Construction came in and repaired the cracks in the old surface. Once these deep cracks were cut and repaired, the old driving surface was then milled (ground off) and replaced with an asphalt mix developed specifically for MPH. The result is a silky-smooth driving surface with a much tighter composition of aggregate, oil and a polymer that adds flexibility and durability to the finished surface.
One look at the new surface shows just how small the aggregate when compared to the old surface. The result is a much smoother track that will result in significantly less tire wear with no loose stones to damage windshields or painted surfaces on our track cars. We KNOW everyone who drives the new surface will love it - and we can't wait to see all of our Viper friends in June 2022!
ABOUT THE TRACK
Motorsport Park's road course is 2.15 miles long and the top Viper drivers average over 85 mph through the course of one lap. Try doing that on the highway and then factor in the 13 turns you have to make at the track!
The top speeds through portions of the track will go over 120 mph.
Not to worry if you are a novice driver as we will pair you up in a group with drivers of similar skills. You will even have an instructor to teach you the ropes. When both you and the instructor are comfortable, you will be free to search out both the Viper's and your own limits. If you are a seasoned driver, feel free to push yourself and your car right out of the gate!
One of our 2014 drivers has said, "I thought the track was a great facility and that was more than confirmed when I went back to my home track and realized how excellent MPH really is in comparison."
The track groundbreaking ceremony was held in 2006, the inaugural race weekend in August of 2006 and the first full time track season started in 2007.
The track has 13 turns. Some high speed, some quite technical, and some faster than you think.

When you need a break from the on track activities, you can take a rest in the air conditioned club house. It is affectionately called the Guardrail Club. It includes seating for all of the drivers meetings, tables for dining during lunch breaks, a full bar, pool table and foosball table. The ceiling to floor windows allow a great view of the action on track and if you need to be just a little closer to the action, just step out the door to the patio. Grab a cool drink and watch the Vipers finish turn 13 and head down the front stretch.
