Brainerd International Raceway, Brainerd, Minnesota
Brainerd International Raceway is the largest racetrack in the Upper Midwest and may offer the most diverse motorsports schedule anywhere. The road course became a favorite for motorcycle racers in 1982 when superbikes came to town where BIR hosted the Honda Classic Camel Pro Series. Three-time 500cc world champion Wayne Rainey won the superbike final that first year and then repeated in 1986 and 1987.
Superbike racing quickly became very popular among fans, and attracted the top riders in the world over the years. Renamed the American Motorcycle Association Superbike Championships, the series made BIR a regular stop during most of the next 25 years, giving fans a chance to see racers like Fred Merkel, Doug Chandler, Mat Mladin, Miguel Duhamel and Eric Bostrom.
With a world-class drag strip and two road course configurations (one is 2.5 miles and the other is 3.1 miles), BIR hosts drag racing, road racing, endurance racing, Superbike racing, drifting and autocross competitions, cruising events, and car shows, It even has a small lake in the campground for watercross, where snowmobiles race on open water.
