The deadline to reserve rooms at Cragun’s Resort for the 2018 Racer Banquet is this Friday, Jan. 19.
Join us for an amazing weekend as we celebrate the accomplishments of last year’s drag racing winners in the Bracket Drag Racing Series and the Muscle Car Series. The banquet is Feb. 24 at Cragun’s Resort. In order to secure a room at the guaranteed rate – $319.90 for two nights or $181.46 for a single night - you must reserve your room with Cragun’s by this Friday. But to reserve your room, you need to register for the banquet first with BIR’s Ticket Office, and you must do that by this Thursday because the office is closed on Friday. Registrations will be accepted after this week but you won’t be guaranteed room availability and the discounted rate. BIR’s offices are open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Thursday this winter.
The banquet program starts with a social hour at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m. The awards ceremony follows dinner. The cost for the banquet is $38 per person, $17 each for kids 8-12 years old, and $11 each for kids 4-7 years old. Please be aware that those who attend the banquet must pay for dinner as well.
The Racer Banquet is BIR’s chance to recognize the top drag racers during the 2017 season. Champions of BIR’s Bracket Drag Racing Series and Muscle Car Series will be honored, and individual awards will be given out as well. It’s a fun night for racers as well as their families and friends.
Make it a full weekend by staying both Friday and Saturday nights. Make a weekend out of it and enjoy snowmobiling, ice fishing or any of a host of other fun things to do at Cragun’s and in the Brainerd Lakes Area.
