The Fastest Show on Earth!
Brainerd International Raceway will celebrate the 30th anniversary of professional drag racing coming to BIR. The fastest cars, the world’s best drivers and a legion of crazy race fans for four days of ground-pounding, lightning-fast, blow-your-mind drag racing.
It’s the 30th Annual Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals. If you’ve never been to a Nationals race here, we guarantee that you’ve never seen anything like it, and you’ll be back again.
The best drag racers in the world compete at the NHRA Nationals on BIR’s world-renowned track, which is the fastest in the country. Names like John Force, Tony Schumacher, Larry Dixon, Ron Capps, Antron Brown, Brandon Bernstein, Doug Herbert, Cruz and Tony Pedregon and Minnesotans Greg Anderson, Jason Line, and Warren and Kurt Johnson will be competing for valuable series points and prize money.
This kind of racing isn’t for the faint of heart. The Top Fuel Dragsters get down the track in under 4 seconds at over 300 mph. They crank out about 8,000 horsepower along the way. Blink at the wrong time and they’re long gone. YOU'VE GOT TO FEEL IT TO BELIEVE IT!
There’s just as much to see off the track. Every ticket comes with a pit pass, so fans are encouraged to watch the teams tear down the race car and put it back together. Drivers are available for autographs and questions.
