    Hello,
    Thinking about going to Brainerd for the NHRA event with my wife and 3 rug rats 12,13 and 15 years of age, probably just Sat and Sun.
    Anyone have some information and or tips on the track, area and attractions around the track?
    I know all about the ZOO, party till ya puke area, dont plan on staying at the track anyway.
    Feel free to tell me where not to go or where not to sit ect. Like section xyz has the sun in your eyes or secation ABC is over the bathroom exhaust fans ect ect.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi, I have lived and breathed the track since it was built. If you want to experience the drags spend the money for good seats. At the starting line. Get them b-4. Just call the track and order. Will make your trip to the track much easier. As far as off track there is mini golf, go karts, water park just south on 371 . All within 4 miles.ENJOY

    With the family, get the non-alcoholic grandstand on the south side of the track. We are usually in Sec E. Sun is behind you.

    Well for me it is where you get a good view of burnouts and if the wind is right NITRO FUMES. and I do believe that is section E and F No alcohol in the premium seats. Plus all the vendors are right behind and the pits are a very short distance. But that's just me. Good time no matter what.
