2013 Bracket Drag Racing Series features 12 races on 6 weekends!
The series has six weekends on the schedule this year. In past years, class winners were determined on Sunday only, after time trials all day Saturday. But this year, class winners will be determined Saturday AND Sunday. Each class will have one round of time trials at the beginning of the day and then start elimination rounds until class winners are determined at the end of the day. So the intensity will be ratcheted up!
The series features amateur drag racers slugging it out for series points, prize money and, ultimately, a series championship. At each weekend race, 250-plus racers battle it out in dragsters, cars, motorcycles, trucks, snowmobiles and Junior Dragsters. Some weekends include testing on Friday, and then racing on Saturday and Sunday. Each class races for full points, trophies and payouts each day. Super Pro and Pro classes still battle for a guaranteed $2,000 to win each day!

Bracket drag racing has been part of BIR’s racing program for over 30 years and has turned out some of the Midwest’s top amateur drag racers, many of whom have gone on to race professionally. It’s an exciting form of racing that created a unique community, where racers and their friends, families and fans enjoy a weekend at the track and a chance to socialize with others with a passion for racing. But it also means some highly competitive drag racing for fans.
Bracket racing is a handicapped form of competition where two vehicles of varying performance potentials can race on a potentially even basis. The anticipated elapsed times for each vehicle are compared, with the slower car receiving a head start equal to the difference of the two. With this system, virtually any two vehicles can be paired in a competitive drag race.
