Race Recap – IWA Brainerd, MN

Photos and Caps: Trent Maurer

The International Watercross Association rolled into Brainerd this past weekend for the Wet and Wild Spring Event at Brainerd International Raceway. BIR seems to be a fan favorite event with a great facility that puts you up close to all the action. Although the weekend was definitely wet with over 2 inches of rain, the racers and fans stuck it out to give us some of the best races we’ve seen so far this season.
