The 2nd annual Jed Copham Memorial Race is back this year with a new addition to the lineup: Formula 4 racing! The track will be busy with Formula 4 and the Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli sharing the road course while the Bracket Drag Racing Series is on the dragstrip. The event honors the track’s late owner and part-time Trans Am driver, Jed Copham.


BIR is bringing back professional road racing July 17-18 while showing appreciation to its fans and honoring the track’s late owner, Jed Copham. Fans can watch live streaming of Sunday’s two featured races on their mobile devices. 


The Trans Am Series has a long and rich history at BIR that dates back to 1969. Featuring professional drivers from throughout the country, the series includes five classes of racing: TA, TA2, XGT, SGT and GT, with classic muscle cars like Mustangs, Corvettes, Camaros and Challengers that fly around the 2.5-mile Competition Road Course. The schedule has practice and qualifying sessions on Saturday, followed by qualifying and the a pair of 100-mile, 40-lap final races on Sunday.

F4 U.S. will be visiting Brainerd International Raceway July 16-18 for the first time to support the SVRA SpeedTour and Trans Am.

Launched in 2014, FIA Formula 4 was created to offer young  race car drivers around the world the opportunity to take the  first step from karting into the world of open-wheel racing.
