AMA Road Racing Adds Barber Motorsports Park to 2012 AMA Pro Road Racing Schedule

AMA Superbike Championship Series action is seen at Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds, AL. as a field of riders heads into the turn four area during the Honda Superbike Classic weekend in April 2007.  The second round of the season, it was the fifth year that AMA Pro Road Racing had held an event at the track, and the late June 2012 stop will see the series' 10th annual trek to the flowing track outside of Birmingham.  Make sure you take an extra day to visit George Barber's fabulous museum while you are there!

Barber Motorsports Park Announced as Seventh Contract Renewal for the 2012 AMA Pro Road Racing Schedule

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (November 7, 2011) - AMA Pro Racing announced today that Barber Motorsports Park will once again play host to the stars of AMA Pro Road Racing, becoming the seventh track to renew for the 2012 season.

M4 Suzuki's Martin Cardenas scored his breakout AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike victory on Saturday while Rockstar Makita Suzuki's Blake Young narrowed eventual 2011 SuperBike Champion Josh Hayes' points lead with a Sunday win.

Just like in 2011, fans will witness thrilling doubleheader action in AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike, AMA Pro Daytona SportBike and AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport, while the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 Series will battle it out in a single race format.
