Beaver Springs Dragway plays host to one of the most successful bracket racing programs in the North Stars Division.  BSD is well known for generating talented drivers, shown by our two NHRA Sears Craftsman ET Racing Series team titles and a long list of Division champions, along with two Race of Champions winners in our first season as an IHRA facility.  Then in 2002,  BSD showed everyone that we're a force to contend with by winning the IHRA Bracket Finals. Our regular bracket schedule will consist with a mix of Sundays, Saturdays and Holiday events. Our points are run in two point Series, plus Overall Points.

Points will be awarded to Team Beaver members as follows:

100 points for staging 1st round
100 points for each round win
  50 points for earning a 1st round bye run
    1 point for an Eliminator win

Teen Championship RacingBeaver Springs Dragway conducted the pilot program for IHRA leading up to the creation of a brand new class for kids ages 13-16 called Teen Championship Racing, or "TCR".  Kids race full-size vehicles to the 1/8th mile (11.00-slower) with a licensed adult co-driver.  Every new driver goes through an orientation and licensing procedure.  Parents drive the car on return roads, through the pits, and in the staging lanes, and the kids run the race track.

Junior Dragster:  Kids ages 8-16 race half-scale dragster powered by engines based on 5hp Briggs & Stratton engines on an eighth-mile course.  Those who attain a Master's license may go as quick as 7.90 seconds.
