GSTA Muscle Car Shootout

SEP 2-4

The 32nd Annual GSTA Muscle Car Shootout on Labor Day weekend is a perennial favorite at BIR and is a great way to cap off your summer. Sponsored by the Gopher State Timing Association, the Sept. 4-6 event features the Muscle Car Series’ grand finale on the drag strip and ridiculous Superbike racing via the Central Roadracing Association (CRA) on the road course, as well as live music, and much more.


On the drag strip, the Muscle Car Series will be wrapping up the season, as drivers duke it out for series championships. The seven Heads-Up Classes – Outlaw Pro Mod, Outlaw, King Street, Real Street, 660 Outlaw Street, and 660 Limited Street – will be center stage, featuring cars with huge horsepower that can get down the track in 6-7 seconds and crank out speeds of 200+ mph. It’s heads-up drag racing at its finest, featuring some of the fastest cars in the Midwest. Time trials and qualifying are Friday and Saturday, with eliminations on Sunday. The race also highlights 10 Index classes, the winners of which have a separate run-off to crown the Index Class Champion. Three Strip Eliminator classes, Truck Eliminator, and Manual Transmission class round out the race schedule.


On BIR’s 2.5-mile Competition Road Course, the CRA is hosting Superbike racing, with practice on Friday and practice and racing on Saturday and Sunday.
