BRAINERD SNODEOS GRASS DRAG & SWAP MEET FAQ’s

A. NO, this is the nicest “back yard” grass drag track in the State and we run everything here. Antique, vintage, modern trail stock, Improvers…

Q. Is there on site camping?

A. YES, but call or email for the “how to” of it. We have some spots w/ electricity.

Q. Is there a cost to camp?
A. Not much, $10.00 a night, $20.00 if you need electricity.

Q. What are the swapper fees?

A. $10.00 for a pick up load, $20 for 3 place trailer, $30 for a 4 place trailer. Gatekeepers have the authority to play the “lets make a deal”.

A. Only the $5.00 to race then they get in the gate free.

Q. So the Kitty Kat 120 racers get trophies?

Getting close.
We set up the course in miniature in front of our clubhouse Yesterday to check the timing.
Young timing 'guru's' Steve and Mike have things dialed in.

Our timing and scoring for 4-lanes .
Our groomer shack and club room is located in the Brainerd Industrial Park, about 1/4 mile from the Grass Track. Budweiser beer across the street , Miller beer 1-block away, and UPS depot at the intersection. :D

2,000 Frames/Sec, 0.001 sec resolution of finish line. Allergy tester, 5 ft. tall mosquito infected golden rod . And its our land. :eek:
