(Brainerd, MN) - In Crow Wing County, Minnesota lies a 3.1 mile and 2.5 mile road course and a dragstrip at Brainerd International Raceway. It is home of the NHRA Nationals. There is a track day during each SHO Convention for enthusiast to take their SHOs out onto the track.
The 2.5 mile road course was the better and more affordable option of the two available road courses. The 3.1 mile road course would cost more. SHO Club did work out with the BIR to use the drag strip too. Nothing more awesome than dragging on a mile-long NHRA drag strip.
The biggest news of the day is when Zach Wright's 1995 Taurus SHO with a mildly modded 3.2L swapped to mate with a 5-speed MTX ran against a 2012 BOSS 302 at the drag strip in the second race against each other. The BOSS 302 captures the first victory. The SHO actually beat the BOSS 302 in the second round. Zach's SHO is stripped down with no electronics and running on drag radials. The BOSS 302 had street tires.
