GSTA Muscle Car Shootout

End Your Summer on a FAST Note

The 30th Annual Gopher State Timing Association (GSTA) Muscle Car Shootout on Labor Day weekend is a perennial favorite at BIR and is a great way to cap off your summer. The event, Aug. 31-Sept. 2, features the Muscle Car Series’ grand finale on the drag strip and ridiculous Superbike racing via the Central Roadracing Association on the road course, as well as live music, a classic car show and much more.

SG17-1016_wOn the drag strip, the Muscle Car Series will be wrapping up the season, as drivers duke it out for series championships. The seven Heads-Up Classes will be center stage, featuring cars with huge horsepower that can get down the track in 6-7 seconds and crank out speeds of 200+ mph. It’s heads-up drag racing at its finest, featuring some of the fastest cars in the Midwest. Time trials and qualifying are Friday and Saturday, with eliminations on Sunday.

On BIR’s 2.5-mile Competition Road Course, the CRA is hosting Superbike racing, with practice on Friday and practice and racing on Saturday and Sunday.

C73U8845-MThere’s a lot happening off the track this weekend as well. On Saturday, a classic car show will be on the infield behind the main grandstand, and The Wheelie Bar & Grille will be hosting live music.

This event is sponsored by the Gopher State Timing Association (GSTA).

What a way to end the summer!
