Where to sit at Barber Motorsports for AMA races

We plan on heading out to the upcoming AMA races at Barber the weekend of 6/21 and wanted to know where you would recommend us sitting to see as much of the race as possible/best vantage point.

Thanks,

Burbs

Move around and see it from areas. You have time between sessions to get around the track. And make sure you get a paddock pass.

IMO, the best view is from 2nd or 3rd floor balcony over the pits, but if you want shade, west end of track, or the handicapped access area on south side. Bring a hammock or chairs or blanket. The track design allows one to move around and enjoy different views, not a bad seat in the house, really. Inside the museum is also a good place to watch from. Enjoy!

+1 for the balcony. I like the long bowl turn before the start straight and the back side looking at them come through the kink.

Move around the track, leave time for the museum, and enjoy Barber! It is the Disneyland of racing facilities.
