Owners of the new 2012 Mustang Boss 302 can now make the most of their hot Mustang because Miller Motorsports Park in Utah has created bespoke track days dedicated to the Mustang Boss 302.
“This is the first program of its kind from Ford. We’re so proud of the new Boss 302 that we wanted to offer owners the opportunity to stretch their legs – and carve corners – on one of the coolest tracks in America,” said Mickey Matus, Ford Racing’s marketing manager. “The Boss 302 is such a legendary nameplate, and our latest version is such a tremendous, fun-to-drive car that we wanted to ensure this exclusive group of owners learn all they could about it, and experience its capabilities in the fun, controlled environment that Miller Motorsports Park can provide.”

Owners from all around don’t have to lug their own Mustang Boss 302s to the track in Utah because Miller Motorsports Park already has their own fleet of Boss 302s at their disposal.
The event starts off with a private reception and dinner the evening preceding the full track day. Those attending will be able to sit down with Larry H. Miller of Total Performance Museum at Miller. Attendees will also be given a behind-the-scenes look at the development of the Boss 302 with a look at Miller’s own personal collection of high-performance Ford and Shelby cars.
The next day, owners will be educated on the dynamics of the Boss 302 and how it drives around Miller’s road circuit. Following the class, owners will learn first-handedly how to control the car in cornering, braking and various dynamic techniques.
There are 15 available sessions from now until the end of the 2011 year. All owners who have bought a Boss 302 recently have up to a year from purchase date to take advantage of the program. Dates for the program in 2012 will be released at the turn of the year. Owners can also attend a second day with one guest at an extra cost.
Refresher: The 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 uses the same 5.0L V8 from the 2011 GT but to achieve the high-rpm horsepower to make it competitive on the track, Ford added a new intake, revised camshafts and a more aggressive control calibration. All that results in 440-hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. Power is transmitted to the wheels through a race inspired short-throw, close-ratio six-speed manual transmission handles gear change duties.
