Barber Motorsports Park

Barber Preview!

Our very first USCA event at Barber Motorports Park is now upon us! The procedures for this event are a little different than normal so this podcast is dedicated to giving the full scoop on the schedule and locational information people will need to know most. This was all e-mailed out as well….but as with all things, sometimes it’s easier to be told what to do than to read it.

Barber is one of the most beautiful tracks in the country and the “heavy hitter” list of entrants is indicative of a pretty fun (and fast) weekend. It’s been sold out for months as well and will be a completely full house! We’ll be back next week with a full recap as well.

Tanks for listening!
