Brainerd International Raceway’s annual Racer Banquet is set for Saturday, Feb. 23 at Arrowwood Lodge in Brainerd.

The program starts with a social hour at 5 p.m., followed by dinner at 6 p.m. The awards ceremony follows dinner. The cost for the banquet  is $38 per person, $17 each for kids 8-12 years old, and $11 each for kids 4-7 years old. Please be aware that those who attend the banquet must pay for dinner as well. Class champions each receive a complimentary banquet meal (non-transferrable).

The Racer Banquet is BIR’s chance to recognize the top drag racers during the 2018 season. Champions of BIR’s Bracket Drag Racing Series and Muscle Car Series will be honored, and individual awards will be given out as well. It’s a fun night for racers as well as their families and friends.

Make it a full weekend by staying both Friday and Saturday nights. BIR is receiving the following special rates if reserved by January 23: $149 per night + tax. Includes 4 waterpark passes and breakfast. After Jan. 23, reservations will be accepted but the block rate is not guaranteed. Rate includees up to 4 people per room. Additional people will be charged $10 each per night + tax.

To register and pay for the banquet, please contact Rachel at BIR: 218-824-7223. BIR’s front office is open Monday-Thursday, 9 am-5 pm.

In the past, we have had people wanting to attend the banquet and not receive dinner. We are NOT going to be allowing people to do that. Arrowwood counts the number of people seated in or around dinner, and BIR ends up covering the expense of additional individuals. If you are planning on attending, please plan on paying for dinner as well.

If you have any questions please feel free to email or call the BIR Front Office.

Hope to see you in February!
