BRAINERD INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY

“The drag strip has a long storied history of drag racing, dating back to 1969, when BIR converted the mile-long straightaway on its road course to a drag strip and hosted an NHRA Divisional Points Race. In 1977, BIR hosted the Crown Auto Funny Car Championships and the Crown Auto Winston Points Championship. Since then, the world's top drag racers have made BIR an annual stop.“
