Two-time King of the Mountain and UtahSBA #1 Plate Holder Oleg Pianykh will race his Moto Station SLC supported Superbike in the RaceFuelZ Pro Superbike race at Miller Motorsports Park.

“I was so excited when the Superbike Shootout partnered with my local club, the Utah Sportbike Association to host Professional road racing at one of the best racetracks in the country. May is early in the racing season for us in Utah, I wish the race was later in the year. But we’ll put in the best effort we can”, Pianykh said.

If racing against the fastest in the country isn’t enough of a challenge, Oleg will up the ante by defending his UtahSBA Championship that weekend in the club races. The snag? He uses Pirelli tires in the UtahSBA Championship and he will be using the Dunlop spec tires in the Superbike Shootout races. Oleg has a feeling for those tires already, having finished 13th in the 2013 AMA Pro Superbike race at Miller. Moto Station SLC has every rim in the shop stripped and ready!

Moto Station SLC and Oleg Pianykh would like to thank Evolution Machining, Vortex and Motul for their Support. We would like to invite everyone to stop by our Garage and say hello.

Tickets for the May 24-25 2014 Arai Mountain Nationals at Miller Motorsports Park are $6 per day for adults and are available at the gate, with kids 12 and under admitted free of charge; and parking is free.
