Saturday’s schedule at the MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing series event at Barber Motorsports Park has been adjusted due to inclement weather at the track.

On-track activities were halted at approximately 9:30 a.m. Central Time, in the middle of SportbikeTrackGear.com Junior Cup Qualifying Two, due to lightning in the immediate vicinity of the track.

Shortly after things were shut down, heavy thunderstorms hit with rain flooding sections of the track, delaying proceedings further. According to one MotoAmerica official, 1.5 inches of rain fell in a 90-minute period.

At 11:35 a.m. local time, MotoAmerica was preparing to restart on-track activities.

According to MotoAmerica Communications Manager Paul Carruthers, the Supersport, Stock 1000, Superbike, and Twins Cup classes – in that order – will each get a shortened, 15-minute Qualifying Two session, which will likely be used by riders to get acclimated to the wet surface.

Following those sessions, the afternoon’s race program is expected to start according to the original schedule with the first race of the day, Stock 1000, slated to begin at 1:10 p.m.

Stay tuned.
