Last season at Barber Motorsports Park, Josh Hayes and Cameron Beaubier represented a tough Yamaha tandem by successfully winning each race in the SuperBike and GoPro Daytona SportBike classes, respectively. Adding to the excitement, a 16-year-old from Los Angeles, Calif. by the name of Joe Roberts exploded onto the AMA Pro Road Racing scene by winning both Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport races in convincing fashion, and Steve Rapp began a three-race win streak in Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson competition.
"AMA Pro Road Racing has been on the schedule since the facility opened and we're excited to have them back in 2014," said Rick Humphrey, Vice President, ZOOM Motorsports. "The racing is as good as its ever been and fans can expect the new two-day event format to be as action packed and full of activity as they've come to anticipate at Barber Motorsports Park."
As if the racing action isn't enough to look forward to, the historic venue is also home to the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum which contains over 750 vintage and modern motorcycles for avid race fans to take in over the course of the weekend.
