CRA Event #2 - July 2023

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.

  • 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.
