The 28th Annual PleasureLand RV Show & Go is a Fourth of July tradition for race fans, and this year will be no different. This year’s event (July 4-6) will be a full weekend of thrilling racing, featuring Muscle Car Series drag racing, Cheerios Racing Great North Legends Cars and the Ultimate Road Race Challenge on BIR’s 13-turn, 2.5-mile Competition Road Course.
On the race track, the Show & Go features some phenomenal drag racing by the seven Heads-Up classes that will be battling in the second race of the three-race Muscle Car Series. Fans will be treated to some serious horsepower that produces runs of 6-7 seconds and speeds over 200 mph. It’s intense drag racing that brings race fans back year after year.
Drivers in the Muscle Car Series are competing for series points, prize money, and ultimately, a series championship. The race features the cars in Pro Outlaw, Outlaw, King Street, Real Street, True Street and the new 660 Outlaw Street. The race will also highlight 10 Index classes, the winners of which have a separate run-off to crown the Index Class Champion. Three Strip Eliminator classes, Truck Eliminator, and Manual Transmission class round out the race schedule. It’s a full weekend of racing, with qualifying that runs Friday and Saturday, and eliminations on Sunday.
On the Competition Road Course, Cheerios Racing Great North Legends Cars make their debut at BIR. These cars are amazing 5/8-scale 1930s coupes and sedans that are super quick and a blast to watch. They will race in two heat races and then a finals on Saturday and Sunday.
Sharing the road course this weekend with the Legends Cars is the Ultimate Road Race Challenge, which is open to all road racers. There will be a variety of classes on the road course Saturday, ending with a 20-car, 12-lap $10,000 winner-take-all race. On Sunday, racers can take part in open lapping. Those who are interested in taking part in either day should call the BIR Performance Driving School at 218-824-7606.
The Show & Go wouldn’t be the same without a bunch of other activities off the track. A classic car show will be on display in front of the brick condos on Saturday. A spectacular fireworks display Saturday night and live music by Junk FM completes the weekend.
It’s three great racing events for the price of one! And SCCA racing goes on rain or shine, so weather won’t stop the racing going on at BIR this weekend.
