Brainerd International Raceway is located just north west of Brainerd, Minnesota on highway 371 north. The facility includes a 3.1 mile, 10-turn road course and is recently added a smaller circuit. This new 2.5 mile road course is a 13-turn circuit with a large area for open camping in the center.

There is also a quarter mile drag strip on the property that has offered "ground-pounding, wheel-standing" entertainment for the past several decades. Another option is the street-legal drag racing that anyone can participate in given they own a street legal car, truck or motorcycle, and have a helmet.
