NHRAís version of a weeklong campout, this event is a popular stop due to the areaís recreational opportunities. Avid fishers often spend the days before the event trolling the areaís many lakes for walleye, bass, and northern pike, and a huge on-site campground provides nightly camaraderie for racegoers who sit around fires discussing the dayís action. A 700-foot concrete launchpad, one of the longest on the tour, helps boost performances as competition heightens for positions in the Countdown to 1.

How to Get There: The track is six miles north of Brainerd on Highway 371 north. From Minneapolis, take Highway 10 north to Highway 371 north; go north to the track.
