BIR preps for big NHRA weekend
There were no races last weekend at Brainerd International Raceway (BIR), but there also was no shortage of action at the racetrack north of Brainerd.
Raceway personnel have been going full force to spruce up the grounds in preparation for the biggest event of the season.
The NHRA is in town.
The 32nd annual Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals, the 15th of 24 races in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series for 2013, run Thursday, Aug. 15, through Sunday, Aug. 18.
