The championship-style Competition Road Course uses portions of BIR’s original 3.1-mile Donnybrooke Road Course, including Turns 1 through 8. But at Turn 8, we 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.

BIR’s 3.1-mile Donnybrooke Road Course opened in 1968. It has served BIR well while playing host to some of the most exciting events and the biggest names in racing. Whether they were Superbike riders, professional Trans Am Series drivers or car club members, many household names in road racing have challenged the road course’s 10 turns, including Turn 1, a banked right-hand 60-degree turn that continues to be the fastest turn on any road course in the country.

Brainerd International Raceway’s quarter mile drag strip is the fastest track in the world, after Tony Schumacher went the fastest MPH ever in his Top Fuel Dragster in 2005.  An incredible speed of 337.58 MPH

The track is one of the favorite stops for pro drivers on the NHRA Nationals circuit after it was reconstructed in 2002. 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 the high-powered Top Alcohol and Top Fuel cars, generating high speeds and fast times.

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.
