CRA Event #1 - May 2021

Brainerd International Raceway

About this event

The Central Roadracing Association (CRA) is a 50+ 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.

CRA Event #1 - May 2021 Schedule

 

Race Registration

The May race weekend of the 2021 season is already here and the CRA will be hosting Trophy Dashes, Single Sprints, and the prestigious Framstad Cup on the Donnybrooke Course.

There have been several changes during the off season.  Here are some of the most important changes affecting the race registration process.

 

MotorsportReg.com

The CRA is now utilizing MotorsportReg.com (MSR) for all race registration and product purchases.

  • Racers are required to complete their CRA Membership on MotorsportReg.com BEFORE they register for a CRA event.
  • New riders CANNOT register for races until they have completed new rider school and received their race license.
  • Grid spots will continue to be awarded based on registration date/time.  The earlier you complete your registration, the better your grid spot.
  • MSR will only allow you to register for each event ONCE.  After you complete your registration, you will NOT be able to register for additional items.  In the event you need to add, remove, or change your registration in any way you will be required to contact Race Registration via email or in person at the event.

Please make every effort to ensure your order is accurate and includes all desired items before you complete registration.

  • Racer wristband
  • Friday practice
  • Races
  • Transponder rental
  • Garage stalls

Repeatedly submitting incomplete orders in an attempt to gain a better grid position will not be tolerated and may be subject to relocation of your grid position to the last row.

  • MotorsportReg does NOT support tiered discount pricing and required the Board of Directors to implement a new price structure for the CRA.

  • MSR does not do “pre reg” pricing in the same manner as the previous CRA store.  MSR utilizes what they call early bird, and post early bird pricing.  Once “pre reg” ends, items will incur a post early bird late fee increasing the price to the post early bird amount.
  • CRA Event Registration on MSR will not allow a user to select concurrently running races.  ie. You cannot register for both Sportsman Lightweight and Sportsman Middleweight since they are on the track at the same time.  If you attempt to select both, MSR will automatically uncheck the previously selected race.
  • MSR requires online payment at the time of registration.  The CRA will no longer be accepting offline payments such as cash or check.
