Dan Davis Named President/COO of Miller Motorsports Park

TOOELE VALLEY, UTAH (September 30, 2008) -- Dan Davis, the former Director of Motorsports for Ford Motor Company, has been named the President and Chief Operations Officer of Miller Motorsports Park, effective immediately.

He will replace Alan Wilson, the track's designer and original CEO/General Manager, who left the company to pursue his interest in a new racetrack-building company, Wilson Sahara Motorsports, established between himself and Sahara Inc., the builders of Miller Motorsports Park.

Davis, 59, comes to Miller Motorsports Park after a 32-year career at Ford Motor Company, the last 12 of which were spent as the Director of Motorsports. He has extensive experience in virtually every area of motorsports around the world, including Formula One, NASCAR, Indy Cars, sports cars and drag racing.

"I am thrilled to have been asked to become a part of the team at America's finest motorsports facility," said Davis. "I appreciate the confidence shown in me by the Miller family, and I look forward to helping Miller Motorsports Park achieve its vast potential in the years to come."

Greg Miller, CEO of the Larry H. Miller Group, said that Davis will be an invaluable asset to Miller Motorsports Park.

"We are very fortunate to be able to attract a person of Dan Davis' caliber to take the helm at Miller Motorsports Park," he said. "He is one of the most respected executives in the automotive and motorsports industries, and the perfect choice to take us into the future. We are very pleased that he has agreed to join our team, and we look forward to working with him to craft a prosperous future for this facility."
