If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to race your own car on a championship drag strip, the Wednesday Night Drags – Street Legal Style is the perfect way to either test the waters of competitive drag racing or just have some fun with your buddies.

BIR opens the track to anyone with a helmet, a valid drivers license and a street-legal car, truck or motorcycle. 

Starting at 4 pm, you can make as many runs as possible until the track closes at dusk. During that time, you get to use the starting line tree, the scoreboard and the burn-out box, just like the pros do. BIR even has an announcer calling the action over the PA system.

The Wednesday Night Drags – Street Legal Style was created as a safe alternative to street racing. BIR offers racers a safe, controlled environment to race, where professional track operators and rescue personnel oversee the racing and ensure that the racers are still able to enjoy the thrill and excitement of racing against their buddies.

There are still two dates coming up this year to try it out; August 31 and Sept. 14. The entry fee to see how your car stands up is $25 and the spectator fee is $5.
