Situated in the hills of Clearfield County PA sits the most diverse track in motorsports. UMI Motorsports Park (UMIMP) is a short-course road racetrack with a ⅝ mile oval and an endless amount of autocross course options. Racers from across the United States and Canada travel to spend summer weekends carving corners and dodging cones. UMIMP’s high-energy events are fun and family friendly.

In 1986, the track was paved with asphalt. This brought new life to the track with NASCAR sanction races. Fans would spend summer nights watching intense competitions. The NASCAR races brought many big names to the track, including Clate Husted, Glenn Gault, Chargin’ Charlie Cragan and Tiger Tom Eriksen.
2017, UMI’s official testing track.
In the fall of 2017, the track became the official testing site for UMI Performance’s American made products. As parts like the UMI Watts Link were being put to the test, Kirkwood looked around the empty park and saw the potential to run events again and bring new life to this piece of history. This is when the concept of UMI Motorsports Park was born.
Coming off the first successful Autocross Challenge, held at the Mid State Regional Airport in August 2017, there was a perfect opportunity to run the second annual Autocross Challenge at the park. So the folks at UMI got to work. The rest of 2017 and most of 2018 was spent getting the track ready to run its first ever autocross competition.

In 2018, UMI Motorsports Park hosted its first event. The second annual Autocross Challenge exceeded expectations and the park’s potential was realized. The following year saw the addition of the King of the Mountain Race. This race was designed to attract drivers from all over the nation, and racers after a winning title.
UMI’s King of the Mountain race is an autocross with a real payout! A mix of vehicles and drivers battle for the prize and the title of King. King of the Mountain 1.0 ran successfully in 2019. Drivers battled for two days to qualify for the nighttime shootout. Once again the track lights were on and fans filled the grandstand and hillside to see the Clearfield track back in action!
Every year the UMI Motorsports Park schedule grows!
