Well buddy boy are you in luck!
Brainerd International Raceway has just offered $10,000 (WHAT YOU SAY!?) to anyone who can bring a racecar and throw down 12 of the quickest laps at Donnybrooke road course. Rumor has it that some serious cars are making their way to the track for the opportunity at some quick cash. I’m going to take a stab at it and say that this isn’t going to be some ‘gentlemen’ racing and fully expect carnage.
Gearhead Daily will have onsite reporters covering some of the hotly contested action! Be sure to check back!
Think you got the guts and the iron to make it? Here’s the skinny.
