For the third consecutive year, the Barber Dodge Pro Series will be sanctioned by Professional Sports Car Racing (PSCR), the same sanctioning body of the American Le Mans Series as well as the Women's Global GT Series and the Ferrari Challenge.
PSCR was founded in September of 1996 as the reincarnation of the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) after IMSA was purchased by the International Motor Sports Group. The title change was made official on Mar. 14, 1997.
"We are pleased to continue our relationship with PSCR for the third year," Steve Sewell, Operations Director for the Barber Dodge Pro Series, said. "We feel that our brand of professional open-wheel racing enhances the diversity of the PSCR sanction portfolio."
The Barber Dodge Pro Series began its affiliation with PSCR in 1998, coinciding with the new look for the Barber Dodge Pro Series as the Barber Dodge Reynard 98E was launched the same year. PCSR's premier event, the Exxon Superflo 12 Hours of Sebring on March 18, 2000, will be the site of the Pro Series' opening round for the 2000 season.
