Fans participating in the parade laps this weekend during the Triumph Superbike Classic presented by America’s First Federal Credit Union at Barber Motorsport Park will get a special treat.

Triumph riders Jason DiSalvo, Dustin Dominguez and Richard Harris have agreed to lead the parade laps on both days. The parade laps are scheduled at the end of on-track activities Saturday and Sunday. Parade lap opportunities are still available and are $30.

“This is just another example of the great opportunities a sponsor like Triumph can bring the fans,” said Rick Humphrey, Vice President ZOOM Motorsports, the exclusive promoter at the Barber Motorsports Park. “For the fans to have the opportunity to get on the track is one thing, but to have these riders join them is an added plus.”

DiSalvo, the 2011 Daytona 200 winner, rides a Triumph in the GoPro Daytona SportBike class and is currently second in the standings. Dominguez and Harris ride Triumphs in the Motorcycle SuperSport class.

The parade laps are designed to allow fans to take a lap around the picturesque 2.38-mile course at a “touring” pace.

The Triumph Superbike Classic is the sixth race of the season for the AMA Pro Road Racing Series and will feature seven races over the weekend.

Tickets for the Triumph Superbike Classic start at just $15 and can be purchased at Kids 15 and under are admitted free with a ticketed adult. The Motorcycle Super Saver package is available until June 21st with access to three motorcycle events at Barber Motorsports Park in 2012, along with complimentary motorcycle parade laps during the Triumph Superbike Classic.

While at Barber Motorsports Park, fans are encouraged to visit the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum, a 144,000 square foot home to the largest private collection of motorcycles, representing 20 countries and over 200 manufacturers. Tickets to the Museum are available for an additional fee and can be purchased at the door.
