AMERICAN LE MANS SERIES REMEMBERS LARRY MILLER
The American Le Mans Series is mourning the loss of Larry Miller, creator and founder of Miller Motorsports Park along with the Utah-based Larry H. Miller Group of Companies. Miller passed away Friday from complications due to Type 2 diabetes at his home. He was 64.
"We send our deepest sympathies and condolences to the Miller family during this very difficult time," said American Le Mans Series President and CEO Scott Atherton. "Larry was a visionary in the truest sense and an exceptional businessman, but also one of the most genuine people I have had the pleasure of knowing. The businesses and facilities he built for Salt Lake City, Utah and the region as a whole will be his lasting legacy. He also had a well-known passion for the automobile and sports car racing. Realizing his dream of constructing Miller Motorsports Park -truly a world-class racing facility by every measure - is something he was very proud of. He was a tremendous enthusiast of the American Le Mans Series even before our first race there in 2006.and we are all better people for having known him as a person and worked with him as a professional."
