About this event
The Central Roadracing Association (CRA) is a 54 year old non-profit organization run entirely by a volunteer board and staff. Our mission is to provide the safest, most affordable, and fun environment in support of the sport of motorcycle road racing. Everything we do in terms of financials is designed to support that mission. Our race fee structure, awards program, advertising, volunteer incentive programs, and safety funds are all closely maintained and managed to grow the sport, increase safety, and ensure longevity of the organization itself.
Brainerd International Raceway is the largest racetrack in the Upper Midwest and may offer the most diverse motorsports schedule anywhere. With a world-class drag strip and two road course configurations (one is 2.5 miles and the other is 3.1 miles), BIR hosts drag racing, road racing, endurance racing, Superbike racing, drifting and autocross competitions, cruising events, and car shows. It even has a small lake in the campground for watercross, where snowmobiles race on open water.
The CRA is a AMA (American Motorcyclist Association) sanctioned organization. In accordance with AMA rules1 all racers are required to hold and provide proof of AMA membership before they are allowed to compete. Proof of membership will be requested at the race registration window prior to receiving your racer wristband.
