Brainerd International Raceway, Minnesota (Images of Sports Series) by John Fitzgerald

If it has an engine and anything close to two wheels, Brainerd International Raceway has hosted a race for it. From sports cars, stock cars, drag racers, and the Can-Am Racing Series to motorcycles, snowmobiles, and chump cars, Brainerd International Raceway has been the northern outpost for exciting track action and infield get-togethers since 1968. It has been called one of the best-constructed tracks in the nation, and with several hairpin turns, a backfield with an undulating, curved spine, and a mile-long straightaway on which racers hit speeds of as much as 200 miles per hour, it certainly is one of the finest in the country.
