The first-ever AHRMA Formula Thunder Pro Challenge will take place on October 7, 2017, during the 13th Annual Barber Vintage Festival in Birmingham, AL. Sponsored by Palmetto State Armory, Luke’s Racecraft and Moto Corse Performance, the race features a cash purse of over $18,000 for the top five finishers, with $8000 going to the winner.
