The 29th 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, Sept. 1-3, features the Muscle Car Series’ grand finale and the SCCA Jack Pine Sprints, as well as live music, a classic car show and much more.
On 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.
On BIR’s 2.5-mile Competition Road Course, the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) will be hosting the Jack Pine Sprints that features regional drivers competing in various classes.
There’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 two nights of live music: Chris Vox on Friday and Blackout on Saturday.
This event is sponsored by the Gopher State Timing Association (GSTA).
What a way to end the summer!
