BRAINERD, Minn. - April 17, 2015 - PRLog -- The sun is shining, lakes are open, and the trees are budding more each day. The signs of spring are everywhere, which means that the summer season is coming fast. Another sure sign of summer’s fast approach is the launch of the Minnesota racing season here in the Brainerd Lakes Area.

Brainerd International Raceway sets the tone for a long exciting summer with the World Racing League May 2nd & 3rd. During the World Racing League, drivers will compete in 9- and 7-hour endurance races both Saturday and Sunday, respectively, on BIR’s road course. This unique event is entertaining for spectators and also a chance for drivers to try their hand at endurance road racing. Put a team together, find a car (just about any will do) and hit the track!

Just a bit south of Brainerd, North Central Speedway will kick off the most exciting racing season yet with an all-new sanctioning body. Saturday night race programs at North Central Speedway will now feature two IMCA-sanctioned divisions beginning with the 2015 season. North Central Speedway is now one of only two historic Minnesota race tracks to be competing with a national sanctioning body (IMCA) behind them. The new Lineup will include NCS unsanctioned Hornets and Pure Stocks, Wissota Streets, Mod 4s, and Supers, and IMCA Sport Mods and Modifieds.

Both Minnesota race tracks have partnered with Visit Brainerd to offer special deals to our fans. BIR is offering a discount on their Performance Driving School, where you can drive a real racecar on the upper Midwest’s largest speedway. North Central is offering a family package, including tickets and snacks. Both of these specials can be viewed on the Visit Brainerd Hot Deal page. Also, the schedules for both of these tracks are now on the Visit Brainerd event calendar.

Come enjoy an exciting weekend of racing and be sure to stay at the Visit Brainerd hotels and water parks that give you centralized access to these two tracks in addition to the other great activities available (5 new things to do ( in the Brainerd Lakes Area.
