NEW TWO-DAY SCHEDULE PROMISES NON-STOP ACTION AT BARBER’S TRIUMPH SUPERBIKE CLASSIC


Birmingham, Ala. – Fans will see an action-packed weekend full of on-track activities when AMA Pro Road Racing returns to Barber Motorsports Park for the Triumph Superbike Classic presented by America’s First Federal Credit Union June 21st-22nd.

The Triumph Superbike Classic will be the debut of AMA Pro Road Racing’s new two-day schedule. Riders and teams will be under qualifying conditions the first time they take to the beautiful and technical 17-turn, 2.38 mile permanent road course located in Birmingham, Alabama.

“With this new format every session is going to count even more than before, so the fans can expect to see the riders pushing hard every minute they are on track,” said Rick Humphrey, Vice President of ZOOM Motorsports, the exclusive promoter at Barber Motorsports Park. “The racing that we see with AMA Pro Road Racing is some of the best racing in the world with riders trading the lead almost every lap, and that’s what we want to provide for our fans.”

Under the new format, the weekend will kick off with SuperSport riders taking to the track at 8:00 am Saturday morning for their first qualifying session. Saturday morning activities will end with the American SuperBike top 12 fastest riders shooting it out for a 10-minute session to see who claims the pole position. Sunday morning features final qualifying for the Vance & Hines Harley-Davison class and warm-ups for all other classes.

Racing is featured each afternoon with American SuperBike, Daytona SportBike and SuperSport racing each day. The Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson class race will take place Sunday after opening ceremonies.

Fans purchasing a paddock upgrade will have the opportunity to meet the riders and get an even closer look at the race bikes during the Dunlop Fan Walk and opening ceremonies held on pit lane during the lunch break on Sunday.

Daily tickets are available starting at $30 or $50 for the two-day weekend. A paddock upgrade is included with the purchase of a two-day ticket and also is available for daily tickets. Parade laps, tent & motorhome camping, and RV spots are also available in limited quantities.
