Annual Racer Banquet set for Feb. 22

Brainerd International Raceway’s annual Racer Banquet is set for Saturday, Feb. 22, 2020 at Arrowwood Lodge at Brainerd Lakes. The deadline to register for the banquet is Feb. 15.

The banquet is BIR’s chance to honor the champions of the Bracket Drag Racing Series and the Muscle Car Series, and to recognize those who made significant contributions to BIR’s 2019 racing program. It’s a fun night for the racers, their families and friends. The banquet is open to fans as well.

The banquet starts at 5 p.m. with a social hour, followed by dinner at 6 p.m. and then the presentation and awards ceremony immediately after dinner. The cost is $38 per person, $17 for kids ages 8-12 and $11 for kids ages 4-7. The cost includes the dinner and ceremony. Series champions each receive a complimentary banquet meal (non-transferrable). Please be aware that those who attend the banquet must pay for dinner. It’s not possible to attend just the ceremony and not the dinner because Arrowwood charges BIR for everyone in attendance.

Attendees can purchase their tickets on by clicking here, or by calling the BIR Ticket Office at 866-444-4455. Winter office hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays.
