About BIR

Brainerd International Raceway has come a long way since George Montgomery first built a track in the woods 40 years ago. In the early years, BIR was primarily known for its road racing, hosting clubs such as Sports Car Club of America, Trans-Am Series, AMA Superbike Championships, and of course – the CRA! It drew competitors from all over the world who wanted to try their hand at 3.1 mile long course and the famous Turn 1; a banked, right-hand, 60-degree turn sitting at the end of a straightaway almost a mile long. It remains as one of the fastest corners of any road course in the country. Some of the best Superbike racers have taken their turn at BIR and raced with the CRA: Jason Disalvo, Robert Jensen, Blake Young, and Jessica Zalusky. In 2008, BIR saw the addition of a 2.5 mile competition course running through the infield. With this new course separated from the drag strip, BIR has made it possible to host two events simultaneously, offering a renewed commitment to a wide variety of racing for all fans.

Outside the gates of BIR, the city of Brainerd/Baxter is home to approximately 20,000 people. Offering track visitors many restaurants, hotels, shopping, and department stores such as Target, Walmart and Fleet Farm to provide anything a racer, volunteer, or spectator may need during the weekend.
