    I've Never Been to BIR, Whats it Like?


    Brainerd International Raceway's quarter-mile drag strip is the fastest track in the world. The track is one of the favorite stops for pro drivers on the NHRA Nationals circuit after it was reconstructed in 2005. A new 700-foot concrete launch pad was added and new asphalt for the remaining 600 feet was installed. The new concrete launch pad creates superior traction for high-powered cars, generating high speeds and fast times. BIR's drag strip is one of the safest tracks in the country. Its half-mile shutdown area allows racers plenty of time to slow their cars down.

    The new championship-style road course uses portions of BIR's 3.1-mile Donnybrooke Road Course but involves a new stretch of track that was built in 2008. Turns 1 through 8 of the original 3.1-mile road course is still used for the new circuit but at Turn 8, and BIR built a 300-degree right-hand Clover Leaf that transitions drivers from the old course to the new stretch of asphalt that winds its way back across the infield, eventually tying back into the original circuit just before Turn 1. In all, the Competition Road Course features 13 turns and very little elevation change but is still challenging for experienced drivers and fun for novices.
