    MAP Proving Grounds 2013 at Brainerd International Raceway

    First event is happening June 21-23, second one is September 6-8. There is Drag racing, auto-x, drifting and road course (HPDE).

    I know I'm going to the first one for sure but won't be able to make it until Friday night. I really want to do the road course and a couple passes at the drag strip.

    Who else is planning on going and what events are you planning on doing?

    I'm going to attempt to Nabs. I don't want to commit to anything but if I do go I'll just be drag racing.

    A few of us were talking about checking it out. If I were to attend, I'd do the auto-x and possibly the road course. In fact, I really want to go! But I just wish it was on a different weekend... Mud Nationals are coming to Minnesota that weekend.

    I thought you had trouble getting the car to go in a straight line?

    I know I have trouble with mine. If I had a set of worn out tires I would go try out the drifting event

    If you've never been on a road course all I can say is you're in for a very good time.

    Also if we're allowed to at the event I wouldn't mind giving some people rides on the road course if they don't want to take their car out!

    You got a block already? When are you going down for a tune? Is Brainerd close-ish to Full Blown?

    I'm officially signed up for 10 - 20min track sessions. 6 on Saturday, 4 on Sunday for a total of 3 hours 20 minutes of track time

    For anyone planning on doing the road course, you have to be registered by June 19th (who am I kidding, I'm talking to myself )

    Yes you are. My car isn't going to be race ready by then but I'm still going to go.

    Boo! You work so slow! Damn white boys, Hector was wrong about them working fast. You know, I thought we could be track buddies but all your car seems to do is break hearts, just like that Kevin Wilson...

    If you're up for it I can take you for a ride or even let you go for one session, as long as you don't break anything. (this applies to anyone coming, if I'm feeling super nice)

    I'm sorry to disappoint you but when you modify your car beyond bolt ons you need to tune it. I can't control the fact that the tuner is booked and I don't feel like popping another engine
