Triumph SuperBike Classic Returns to Barber Motorsports Park

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) -Things are rather quit over here at Barber Motorsports Park for the Friday leading up to the Triumph Super Bike Classic. Usually you can catch the riders making some practice runs but this year the new format packs all the action into two-days.

“It’s nonstop action on Saturday then Sunday we have the warm-up then the race so there is always going to be something good for the fans to see on the track,” said the No. 18 GEICO Superbike rider Chris Ulrich. “I mean you roll out of the pits and you are qualifying so you better bring your A-game from the first session on.”

Barber Motorsports Park receives a lot of praise. Especially from Trussville’s Jason DiSalvo who can call this place home.

“The two day format is going to play into my wheelhouse being that I am the local expert,” said No. 40 Castrol SportBike rider DiSalvo.  “I’ve got more laps on this track than anybody. Our team has more laps with our setup here and with our setup really refined so I think that is going to play to our advantage for sure.”

Qualifying starts Saturday morning at 8 a.m.
