If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to race your own car on a championship drag strip, or if you’d like to know how to get into competitive drag racing, here’s your chance. The Wednesday Night Drags – Street Legal Style is the perfect way to either test the waters of competitive drag racing or just have some fun with your buddies.

BIR opens the track to anyone with a helmet (Snell 2005 or newer), a valid drivers license and a street-legal car, truck or motorcycle. The gates open at 4 p.m. You can make as many runs as possible until the track closes at dusk. During that time, you get to use the starting line tree, the scoreboard and the burn-out box, just like the pros do. We even have an announcer calling the action over the PA system.

In addition to drag racing, the Wednesday Night Street Drags give drivers a chance to try autocross and drifting. Autocross is a timed competition where cars maneuver individually through a course. It’s more about car control than speed and horsepower. Drifting is similar, but the car maneuvers through the course in controlled skids. It’s as much fun to watch as it is to participate. Below is a schedule of when autocross and drifting are offered.

The Wednesday Night Drags – Street Legal Style was created as a safe alternative to street racing. BIR offers racers a safe, controlled environment to race, where professional track operators and rescue personnel oversee the racing and ensure that the racers are still able to enjoy the thrill and excitement of racing against their buddies. BIR is committed to the highest standards of safety.

Participant Entry – $25
Spectator Entry – $5
Note: Cash & checks only.
