Nothing But Bikes at BIR

It's all bikes at Brainerd International Raceway this weekend.

On the drag strip, a variety of drag bikes will be racing a quarter mile at a time. Everything from street bikes to Pro Stock bikes that crank out speeds over 180 mph will be competing. In all, more than 150 bikes are expected to come from throughout the Midwest.

On the 2.5-mile, 13-turn Competition Road Course, the Central Roadracing Association will showcase its brand of Superbike racing, where riders scream around the track on two wheels and a knee. They average speeds over 80 mph during super-competitive racing action. The action will include an all-women’s race, in honor of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
In addition to the racing on both tracks, fans will see a stunt show at 2 p.m. Saturday by the Squidwheelies Sportbike Freestyle Team. At noon on Saturday and Sunday, the CRA is hosting a “Drive the Track” fundraiser for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Fans can drive the road course with the CRA, which is accepting donations.

It’s a Dual Event Weekend, meaning that one ticket gets you in to see both forms of racing. Racing will go on rain or shine, and daily admission is $10 for adults, $5 for kids. On-site camping is available.
