Brainerd Motorsports Park, IHRA Sign Multi-Year Agreement

Monday, 09 March 2020
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Brainerd Motorsports Park kicks off its 2020 racing season with the announcement it has signed a multi-year sanctioning agreement with the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA).
 
Brainerd Motorsports Park
Conveniently located off Interstate 75, just 10 miles from Chattanooga, Tenn., and less than two hours from Atlanta, the 1/8-mile drag strip is a destination for many racers from Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama. 
 
Track owners Ron Newman and the husband-wife team of Amy and Steve Farrow have a full schedule of events planned from March through the end of November.
 
“Brainerd Motorsports Park is a great facility in a terrific location,” IHRA Division Director Frank Kohutek said. “Amy and Steve Farrow and Ron Newman have done a tremendous job providing the racers in that area with a first-class facility and a great racing surface. Brainerd Motorsports Park is a great representative of an IHRA-member track.”

The staff has worked well in conjunction with other IHRA-member tracks in the region not to schedule major events at the same time. 
 
Brainerd Motorsports Park features a strong participation in the IHRA Summit SuperSeries, the most prestigious grassroots drag racing program in North America. Track champions for 2019 included: Eric Harris (Top), Derek Varner (Mod) and Jesse Long (Junior). 
 
Brainerd was also well represented at the IHRA Summit (Heatwave) Division 2 Team Finals. Grace Varner took the Junior Dragster win, while Marty Goldsmith was runner-up in the Sportsman race. 
 
In addition, track hosts its own special points program, the High 5K Bracket Series. For 2020, they have launched the Four-Forty Bad Boyz Series, a seven-race series for Doorslammers running a 4.40 index. It features two rounds of qualifying and a pro ladder with drivers from Michigan to Florida showing interest.
