Here are our picks for races worth a tow to in the next 8 weeks:
 
Track Day/HPDE
 
Track: Barber Motorsports Park
 
 
Location: Birmingham, AL
 
Dates: April 18-19, 2015
 
Host: Chin Motorsports
 
Format: Track Day/HPDE
 
Backstory: Barber Motorsports Park has to rank as one of the most beautiful tracks in the U.S. Not only that, the course is twisty, with ample elevation change. And, for good measure, Barber has an on-site motorcycle and race car museum that is worth a visit on its own.
