7th Annual Super Secret Fun Run (SS/FR)
By Gordy Schwarz #1264 & the MSRA Board of Directors
Wow! Can you believe it’s been 7 years since this fun started! We’re still trying to keep it simple, fun, and relaxing.
Here are the specifics to this year. (Information is deemed accurate at time of publication but could be changed at any
WHO: Current card carrying MSRA members ONLY and their families. NO APPLICATIONS FOR MEMBERSHIP AT
WHAT: Super – Secret – Fun – Run. Another opportunity to relax and socialize with other friends/members after a busy
summer and Back to the 50’s.
WHERE:Brainerd International Raceway
5523 Birchdale Rd, Brainerd, MN 56401
Just 6 mi N of Brainerd/Baxter on the east side of Hwy 371. www.brainerdraceway.com.
Toll free phone: 866-444-4455.
WHEN: August 24, 25 & 26, 2012. Gates open at Noon on Friday
NO ADMITTANCE BEFORE THIS, NO EXCEPTIONS
You MUST have a current MSRA membership card in your possession. NO EXCEPTIONS!
ACCOMMODATIONS: Overnight camping is available. This includes those who sleep in their rigs in the pits.
BIR has campsites with power, water & sewer hookups. Make reservations through BIR at the number above.
FOOD: Friday and Saturday evening dinner will be pot luck style, bring a dish to share, served at approximately 5:30 pm.
Meat will be provided.
Chevrolet owners: starch dish to share (ie potato, pasta, rice, hot dish, buns, etc)
Ford owners: salad or vegetable dish to share
Chrysler owners: Dessert to share
Orphan cars or any other: fruit or relish to share
BYOB event – Bring your own beverage!
JUST A FRIENDLY REMINDER
This is a nostalgic, street rod and custom event. In that order, those cars will have priority for the 1/8 mile. If you own
a later model car (’79 or older) and want to bring it to Brainerd, you are welcome to do so but you can’t participate in the
“on track” activities. Please remember that the nostalgia, drag cars, street rods and customs that are not included in the
“PRO” category take priority in staging. NO EXCEPTIONS!
DRAG RACING PROGRAM:
Sessions all day Saturday and two sessions on Sunday, weather permitting. Session times to be announced at the
event. We’ll run 1/8 and 1/4 mile.
This is FREE TO MSRA CARD CARRYING MEMBERS.
These on-track sessions are provided for invited guests of MSRA to run their nostalgia and/or professional drag cars.
There will be several vintage front-engine dragsters, top fuel cars, fuel altered and possibly several vintage ‘60s “funny
cars”. This is part of racing too.
NO bracket cars, NO 3rd generation Camaros, NO Tuners or sport compacts, NO motorcycles and NO rear engine
What this means is this is a nostalgia drag, street rod and custom run for MSRA members. You’re welcome to come
but nothing built after 1979 will be allowed to run the 1/8 mile non-comp program unless the car has NHRA significance.
DRAG RACING RULES: There will be NO LICENSE TEST RUNS!
MSRA members will be allowed to make passes down the drag strip provided their cars will pass the on-site NHRA
Tech & Safety Inspection. If you do not pass Tech you do not run your car. NO EXCEPTIONS! You must be a licensed
driver with valid license and proof of insurance AND a current MSRA membership card to participate.
Your vehicle must have the minimum required safety equipment for the speed and ET your vehicle runs in order to
make a pass down the World’s Fastest Drag strip. Some examples of missed items from previous years are: improperly
installed or missing seats or seat belts, missing or leaking coolant overflow “puke” tank, missing or broken battery hold
down, nylon tubing used for a mechanical oil pressure gauge and missing or expired safety helmet.
We will have full safety and medical personnel on site during “hot track” times. Some vehicles may only be allowed to
run 1/8 mile while others will get the ok to run the full 1/4 mile. This will be determined by the Tech Inspector at the time
of inspection. Make sure your helmet has a Snell Safety Foundation sticker inside, rated M2005, SA2000 or SA2005 and
that all other equipment like belts and certifications are up to date and in good shape. So, if you plan to run your car,
make sure it’s strong and safe and ready to run. If you do not pass Tech, you do not get to run your car. NO
SAFETY IS FOR YOU!

Plans will continue to be revealed as they are finalized but we promise to provide some unique activities that aren’t
available anywhere else. We are planning two Poker Runs, one running to the north & one to the south, so there will be
plenty of opportunities for sightseeing along the North Shore, including a stop at a historic Logging Camp Museum.
Plans for Friday night’s dinner are for a Lake Superior fish fry, music & karaoke and an outdoor movie at the Lake
County fairgrounds. We are already praying for great weather for the weekend!
The Show & Shine will be located at the Two Harbors waterfront with views of Lake Superior & the ore shipping facility
in Agate Bay. You may even have the opportunity to view 1,000 foot ore carriers maneuver their way in and out of the
harbor while you’re there. An antique steam locomotive is scheduled to arrive during the day and there are 4 museums
within a short walk, including a floating tug boat and the Two Harbors Lighthouse B & B. There will also be a craft show on
site and food will be available throughout the Show & Shine area.
Lakeview National Golf Course has some of the most spectacular vistas in the state and will offer special rates for
MSRA members. Reserve your tee time during registration. Not so ambitious? The Country Inn will be offering free mini
golf for MSRA members, too!
Did you know that there are FIFTEEN STATE PARKS within a 100 mile radius of Two Harbors? FIVE of these are
located within 55 miles along the North Shore, which has also been designated as a National Scenic Byway. You may
want to take this opportunity to spend some additional time in the area experiencing all that Minnesota’s Arrowhead
Region has to offer. Several of our State Parks will be available for MSRA members to tour at no cost during the
weekend. They all feature spectacular scenery, each with their own special attributes. Take it from those of us who live
here, it’s definitely worth the trip!
The North Shore Classics Car Club is honored to be able to provide rides on Lake Superior for MSRA members on a

SERVED basis and is WEATHER DEPENDENT! You will want to be sure to register early in the day on Friday to take
advantage of this very special opportunity!
