Fire destroys race car trailer at BIR


Fire destroyed a race car trailer in the infield of Brainerd International Raceway on Saturday, Aug. 31, during the time trials for the Lucas Oil Muscle Car Shootout.

No one was injured, but the trailer was a total loss.

Public safety and fire officials did not believe the cause to have been suspicious, and initially considered the source to have been electrical within the open and unoccupied trailer.
