August 24-26, 2023

UMI’s Motorsports Park will once again host the top autocross and Pro-Touring cars and drivers in the nation for our 5th annual King of the Mountain race. 125 cars will battle for two days for their spot in the 48 car-shootout under the lights. The winner of the shootout will become the 2023 King of the Mountain.

The UMIMP Driver Experience

During this two day autocross event, drivers can enjoy the full UMI Motorsports Park atmosphere. Starting from Thursday registration, drivers can pick up their complementary slice of pizza and event tee. Between the morning and afternoon course runs, drivers are offered complementary lunches. On Friday night, drivers and their families are welcome to gather at the community pavilion and enjoy musical entertainment and lawn games. If a driver doesn’t make the shoot-out they win admittance to view the Saturday Night Shoot-out from the VIP section.

The fun doesn’t have to stop there! There are plenty of lodging options on the park’s campus so you can spend the whole weekend at the park.
