Triumph Superbike Classic

Posted: Updated:

Fans who attend the Triumph Superbike Classic presented by America's First Federal Credit Union at Barber Motorsports Park next weekend will have more opportunities than ever to enhance their event experience.

In addition to watching some of the greatest on-track action the AMA Pro Road Racing Series has ever seen, ticket holders will have multiple opportunities to meet riders and their teams and even a chance to take their own motorcycle onto the 2.38-mile track.

The first chance for fans to meet riders will be at the AMA Pro Fan Party on Thursday night.  It's scheduled for 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at Billy's Sports Grill (4520 Overton Road in Birmingham). Fans will have a chance to visit with their favorite riders of the AMA Pro Road Racing Series in a casual atmosphere prior to the start of race weekend.  Door prizes such as race tickets, motorcycle parade lap passes and event merchandise will be given away as well.

At the end of Friday's on-track activities, all Friday ticket holders attending the event will be allowed to walk the picturesque track with the stars of the AMA Pro. The track walk will be free to all ticket holders andZOOM Motorsports, the exclusive promoter at the Barber Motorsports Park, will donate a portion of the day's ticket sales to the Road racing World Action Fund.

Nick "Apex" Brocha and Ernie "EDub" Vigil will return to Barber Motorsports Park for the first time since filming the highly viewed video "The Chase" at the renowned road course and motorsports museum. Nick and Ernie, who also star in the "Motorcycles vs. Car Drift 2" film that's been viewed more than 10 million times on YouTube in just four months, will perform during the scheduled lunch breaks Saturday and Sunday.

The fan walks are open to all guests who have purchased paddock access pass. The Fan Walks allow fans to interact with the riders and their teams and view their bikes just prior to day's racing activities.

The parade laps offer fans the opportunity to take their motorcycle on track the same weekend as the AMA Pro Road Racing Stars. Parade laps are available at the end of the day Saturday and Sunday and are $30.
