BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Historic Sportscar Racing and Historic Motor Sports Ass’n officials have announced next month’s running of the HSR/HMSA Barber Historics at Barber Motorsports Park has been canceled.
The decision was made following an update Tuesday by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey that did not alter an order banning non-work related gatherings that has been in place since March 28. The order specifically includes sporting events as one of the group activities prohibited.
Scheduled for May 15-17, this year’s Barber Historics would have been the second running of the jointly-operated HSR and HMSA event that made a successful debut on the same weekend last year on the 2.38-mile circuit.
Possible makeup dates for the HSR/HMSA Barber Historics will be discussed with Barber Motorsports Park officials in the near future.
