30th Annual GSTA Muscle Car Shootout – BIR

August 31, 2018 - September 2, 2018

The 30th Annual Gopher State Timing Association (GSTA) Muscle Car Shootout on Labor Day weekend is a perennial favorite at BIR and is a great way to cap off your summer. The event, Aug. 31-Sept. 2, features the Muscle Car Series’ grand finale on the drag strip and ridiculous Superbike racing via the Central Roadracing Association on the road course, as well as live music, a classic car show and much more.

On the drag strip, the Muscle Car Series will be wrapping up the season, as drivers duke it out for series championships. The seven Heads-Up Classes will be center stage, featuring cars with huge horsepower that can get down the track in 6-7 seconds and crank out speeds of 200+ mph. It’s heads-up drag racing at its finest, featuring some of the fastest cars in the Midwest. Time trials and qualifying are Friday and Saturday, with eliminations on Sunday.

On BIR’s 2.5-mile Competition Road Course, the CRA is hosting Superbike racing, with practice on Friday and practice and racing on Saturday and Sunday.

There’s a lot happening off the track this weekend as well. On Saturday, a classic car show will be on the infield behind the main grandstand, and The Wheelie Bar & Grille will be hosting live music.
