Brainerd Minnesota has long been Minnesota's racing destination with two great race tracks surrounded by all that the Brainerd Lakes area has to offer. Our Brainerd Hotels & RV Park offer you the perfect centralized location to acces either of the tracks and everything else that the Brainerd Lakes area has to offer.

Brainerd is home to the Midwest's largest racetrack, Brainerd International Raceway, which each August hosts the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals, when Top Fuel and Funny Car drivers compete. BIR also is host to the BIR Performance Driving School and the Street Smart Teen Driving School.

In addition to BIR Brainerd is also home to North Central Speedway offering dirt track racing at its finest.

North Centra Speedway has 2 kids night; one in August with a 50 bike giveaway and another one in August where 100 backpacks full of school supplies are drawn for.  In addition to all their unique and fun Saturday Night events they host the 360 winged Sprints and the RV Modified Tour all on Labor Dy Weekend.  New this year in Sept and October, NCS is bringing 4 late model shows to the Brainerd Lakes area which with our 31 enclosed, won't matter if its chilly in the air.  which gives fans their fix of dirt track racing. Enjoy the race from the tailgate area, bleachers, or a comfortable booth. North Central Speedway hosts World Of Outlaw racing in July and Season Champs in August.
