SCCA Road Racing @ Brainerd Intl. Raceway

Land O'Lakes Jack Pine Sprints
July 3-4, 2010

SCCA Racing Returns To Brainerd Raceway July 2-4, Dual event includes Show & Go on the Drag Strip, Classic Car Show

The Sports Car Club of America's Land O' Lakes Region will bring its exciting brand of road racing to Brainerd International Raceway July 2-4 during its Jack Pine Sprints. This will be the first SCCA race event at the track in ten years.

The four-race regional event will be held on BIR's new 2.5-mile Competition Road Course and will feature SCCA's familiar Formula cars, sport racers and GTs. Cars in the Vintage Class, including classic Corvettes and Mustangs, will run wheel to wheel with Morgans, TVRs and Lolas as well. This is super competitive racing that highlights the skills of very talented drivers. For race fans who aren't familiar with road racing, this event is an excellent introduction.

The Fourth of July weekend will be a great chance for fans to enjoy both road racing AND drag racing. In addition to the Jack Pine Sprints, the drag strip will be alive with the unmistakable sound of muscle cars launching from the drag strip starting line during the 24th Annual NAPA Auto Parts Show & Go, featuring the second race of the Outlaw Street Car Series.

In addition to the racing taking place on the race tracks, there will also be plenty of action off the tracks, too. All fans at BIR will be treated to a classic car show behind the drag strip grandstands, live music on Saturday night and fireworks. A single ticket gets you into BIR where you can go back and forth between both events at no extra cost. And for those who may be concerned with the weather (rain can delay drag racing), the SCCA will race rain or shine.
