BIRMINGHAM — The Northwest Maico & CZ National Vintage Motocross Series is returning to the Barber Vintage Festival presented by Triumph Dealer of North America after taking last year off from the event. The series will run at the Barber Motorsports Spark in Leeds on Saturday, Oct. 10 and Sunday, Oct. 11, while the event is a three-day event spanning the entire weekend.
One of the largest vintage festivals in the country, more than 65,000 people came through the gates last year, and the festival is continuing to grow according to a press release.
The weekend will consist of on-track racing action provided by the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA), in addition to motorcycle displays, bike shows, stunt shows and more. The America’s First Federal Credit Union Fan Zone will feature the popular Wall of Death stunt show, club gatherings, Triumph Motorcycles on display and a variety of concession and food vendors.
The park has built a new track, and AHRMA officials who have seen it are impressed with Barber’s accomplishments on the project.
The motocross track is located near Lot C, so all AHRMA off-road competition, parking and camping will now be in Lot C, meaning new trials sections and a new cross-country course will be used.
