Utah Sport Bike Association Announces The Superbike Challenge at Utah Motorsports Campus
Tooele, Utah (March 1, 2016) — The Utah Sport Bike Association (UtahSBA) is pleased to announce The Superbike Challenge, a pro-am Superbike race that will be a support event to Round 7 of the MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship at Utah Motorsports Campus (UMC) over the weekend of June 23-25. This will be the fourth iteration of The Superbike Challenge at UMC.
“We are carrying on a tradition that Larry Miller started with World Superbike in 2009,” said UtahSBA President Scott Rybarik, “and we’re thrilled that MotoAmerica is willing to partner with us to make this an amazing weekend for racers and spectators alike!”
The Superbike Challenge is designed to attract riders from clubs around the nation. Only competitors in the top five positions of any MotoAmerica championship at the beginning of MotoAmerica Round 7 are excluded from competing in The Superbike Challenge. With a reasonably open rule set and purse money up to $20,000, UtahSBA expects this to be a popular event.
“We’re working on a sponsorship deal that will provide a good amount towards the projected purse,” said Rybarik. “We will also be directing a significant portion of the entry fees to fund the purse, so as more people register, more purse money becomes available.”

The Utah Sport Bike Association is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization that uses 100 percent of its revenue to support rider education, safety and racing throughout the Intermountain West. With a history that goes back more than 30 years, UtahSBA has fostered the growth of some of the nation’s most influential racers, instructors, authors and motorcycling advocates.
The six-race 2016 Vortex Masters of the Mountains racing series will be operated and sanctioned by UtahSBA exclusively at Utah Motorsports Campus (formerly Miller Motorsports Park). The series was created to encourage competitive road racing at the club, regional and national levels. In its tenth year, the series has quickly turned into a premier championship, drawing top-level talent from around the nation.
