"This event continues to get bigger and better each year and with the addition of even more exciting on-track action, we couldn’t be more thrilled for the 2014 race weekend," stated Rick Humphrey, vice president of ZOOM Motorsports, the exclusive event promoter of Barber Motorsports Park. "We are already on track for our best event yet."

Throughout the three-day weekend, fans will enjoy seeing all of the big names in IndyCar racing as they take on the 2.38 mile, 17-turn circuit each day to prepare for the main event on Sunday, April 27.

The popular Legacy Indy Lights 100 returns, offering a second race for fans during the weekend. Highlighting the brightest up and coming talent in the Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires series, these drivers compete with an ultimate goal of one day securing a seat in the IndyCar Series.

Returning after a year’s absence, Pro Mazda brings the second step in the Mazda Road to Indy development series. These open-wheel, open cockpit racers are capable of 260 horsepower and top speeds of 170 MPH.

New to the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama weekend is the first stage of the Mazda Road to Indy Series, USF2000.

Featured classes will include Grand Touring (GT), Grand Touring Sport (GTS), as well as Touring Car (TC) and Touring Car B-Spec (TCB). These series feature more everyday manufacturers that fans drive to and from work, including imports Honda, Audi, Volvo, Kia, and Porsche, as well as American-based Cadillac, Chevrolet and Ford. Pirelli World Challenge will offer fans four races throughout the schedule-packed weekend.

"Fans are going to be overwhelmed with all of the exciting on-track racing this year," stated Humphrey. "With 11 races taking place at this fine road course, the Honda Indy Grand Prix weekend will be every motorsports fan’s dream. It’s definitely a weekend for the entire family and kids will love the fan walks, kids zone, and ferris wheel. We are really excited about 2014 and look forward to seeing everyone in town for this fun, social event."
