MotoAmerica Championship Of New Jersey In Twenty Photos

Yoshimura Suzuki's Toni Elias won both Superbike races and wrapped up his first MotoAmerica title

Barber Motorsports Park is hosting Round 10 of the 2017 MotoAmerica Series, the Honda Championship of Alabama, this weekend, September 15-17. Arguably the most beautiful and well-maintained stop on the racing calendar, this picturesque venue will feature two full days of competition on the 17-turn, 2.38-mile circuit. The racetrack and its "always growing" vintage museum are located on the outskirts of Birmingham and owned by dairy magnate and real-estate developer George Barber.

Before practice begins on Friday morning, MotoAmerica photographer Brian J. Nelson provides a look back at the on-track action from Round 9, last weekend's Championship of New Jersey, where Yoshimura Suzuki's Toni Elias earned back-to-back victories and clinched the Motul Superbike title. After also doubling in both Supersport races at the Millville track, defending class champion Garrett Gerloff holds a commanding 46-point advantage over his factory-supported Yamaha teammate, JD Beach.

At Barber, MotoAmerica television partner beIN SPORTS will broadcast all five classes—Motul Superbike, Bazzaz Superstock 1000, Supersport, Superstock 600, and the entry-level KTM RC Cup.
