The Birmingham News reports that several IndyCar teams will soon be participating in a testing session at Barber Motorsports Park, which begs the question: which is more likely to raise your eyebrows?

That a track in Alabama would like to host an ICS event?

"It will be the first step for exploring a possible event in 2009," (Zoom Motorsports President Gene) Hallman said. "It's early but we want to know what it would take to accommodate the IRL. It is the premier open-wheel series in the U.S. and it draws tremendous crowds."
Or that Uncle Sam is practicing his IndyCar skills right in the middle of his N-word endeavor?

Indy Racing League stars Sam Hornish Jr., Dan Wheldon, Danica Patrick and Helio Castroneves are among 12 to 15 drivers scheduled to take part in an IRL testing session at Barber Motorsports Park on Oct. 12, track and IRL officials said Monday.
I'm gonna go with the latter. So is Ryan Briscoe.

    Haha, check out the vaporware 2008 World Superbike and MotoGP races at Barber. Zoom and that track are long on the bullshit promises, short on the real world results. Long story short, they have no permanent garages and it's too narrow/short to race open wheel cars on.
