From Around the Paddock
A day that featured two promoter’s tests and two official practice sessions progressed with relatively little interruption, with only a brief stoppage during the second on-track session of the day halting on the track running. In picture-perfect conditions, the talk of the paddock was the overall speed at the ultra-fast Utah Motorsports Campus (UMC) as teams and drivers utilized the four sessions to find the limit. Times dropped throughout the day as a competitive field in all classes will look to kick the official competition off tomorrow in qualifying at 9:00am.
First Trip West in 2022
Today marked the first trip to the West Coast this season and the first trip back to the Utah Motorsports Campus since 2018. Championship contenders and teams made the trek to UMC and after loading into the garages yesterday and took part in a full day of testing today. Familiar faces strolled the paddock as the series welcomed new and returning drivers to the mountain view venue. While entries are on the lighter side, Radical Cup North America officials confirmed a huge number of drivers for the next event at the famed Circuit of the Americas and a ton of engagements and interest for the World Finals in November. Fit the Sonoma Raceway event between the aforementioned, and the series is trending upward to finish strong.
The Blue Marble Radical Cup North America program continues to bring and introduce new drivers to the series. Racing out of the Radical Northwest / Cameron Racing outfit this weekend is Dan Decker as he makes his series debut in the Pro 1500 Class. With CEO Joe Anwyll on site, several conversations were had on a bigger and better promotional program in 2023 to help bring more youth into Radical Cup programs around the world. Stay tuned for a short video interview from Joe later this week on all of our social media pages.

Utah Motorsports Campus
Under new management, the Utah Motorsports Campus continues to evolve and is being brought back to the level that it once was. As one of the premier facilities in the western half of the United States, UMC had some rough times with a former management structure. Moving in a new direction earlier this season, the facility is beginning to go through some major upgrades and changes as the customer service level trackside is second to none. We are excited to be back at UMC and thank their staff for the fantastic hospitality.
