Indy Cars to return to Birmingham – ONLY pre-season road course test
America’s open wheel racing league, the Indy Racing League (IRL) returns to Birmingham‘s Barber Motorsports Park this March. They ran some test sessions last year on the track and it made for a great time for those of us that went out to view these beautiful cars roll around our favorite road course. It’s a 3 day event, so block Fri-Sun, March 20-22, 2009 on your calendars now.
The FULL FIELD is expected to attend since this is the league’s ONLY pre-season test on a road course. The press release states “Come watch 2008 IRL Champion Scott Dixon, 2007 Champion Dario Franchitti, Helio Castroneves, Danica Patrick, Marco Andretti, and more. Also in attendance will be the IRL’s developmental series, the Firestone Indy Lights.”
