The USF Juniors’ opening race at Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds was shortened on Friday after multiple drivers were involved in a scary, full-speed collision.

Fortunately, both drivers, Ava Dobson and Bruno Ribeiro, involved in the brunt of the crash walked away from the incident. 

The race is one of many at Barber this weekend with the NTT IndyCar Series making their annual stop in Alabama. Gates open at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The IndyCar race will begin at noon on Sunday.
