IT'S ALMOST HERE - NAPA HALLOWEEN CLASSIC XXI RAPIDLY APPROACHING

We're having a difficult time containing our excitement for the NAPA Auto Parts Halloween Classic XXI weekend. The multi-day boo bash will be here before we know it - October 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th.

Pre-entries have been flooding the Firebird post office box in anticipation of our “last major drag racing weekend of the season". The deadline for your pre-entry is October 2nd (by postmark on your envelope) after which on-site entries will be accepted at the gates beginning on Wed., Oct. 8th.

Customary to the Classic, there's so many activities and fun things planned for this year's event, it's hard to list `em all out item-by-item…this is one of the main reasons we print and mail out literally thousands of our four-color brochures to our extensive data base.

Classic categories include: Super Pro (12.99 & Quicker, electronics-ok), Pro (7.50 - 13.99), Heavy (11.50 to 13.99) and Sportsman (12.00 & Up). All four overall champions will earn Idaho State Championship Wally awards and compete for the Classic Grand Championship, which will award the two-round victor a bonus of $2,000 in cash (above and beyond all other weekend winnings). The Drag Sled and Motorcycle fraternity will also have an opportunity to run for an Idaho State title (and Wally plaque), too. Junior Lightning and Thunder racers will run in eliminators on both Sat. and Sun. of the Classic, too, with Junior Wally trophies on the line.

The Lucas Oil Top Gun Shootout returns for the 16 quickest full-bodied cars, which will split the competition ladder with the 16 quickest open-wheeled rides. Billed as the "War to Settle the Score", this ought to be one wild slugfest between many of the fastest rides from Division 5, 6, and 7.

Opening up the five-day event, racers who have competed in the seven-race Club Challenge Series this season will get an opportunity to run in the Club Grand Championships. The Sweet 16 (Silver Cup teams) and Dirty Dozen (for the Bronze and Copper clubs) will compete head-to-head before each individual winner moves into the overall Club Grand Championship.

A multitude of special bonus races will be offered on both Thursday and Friday, including Super Roller, No Box/Hi-Roller, No Box/Gambler and Sled/Bike Gambler.

If you haven't got your costume or pit decorations planned out, you'd better start getting the ball rollin'. We're tossin' the challenge out to any and all race teams – here's your chance to blow everyone away on Sat., the 11th with the wildest, most creative, totally over-the-top costume or pit decoration. The OR-IDA-WA team (pictured above in their pit area last October) in recent years has been tough to beat in the pit scene/costume competition, but we know there are many of you ready to accept the challenge of topping their efforts. Come on, let's get after it!

Additionally, all pre-entered teams who plan to park and begin their camp-out at the raceway on Tuesday evening are welcome to participate in the inaugural Corn Hole competition. New to the Firebird Classic, titles and awards will be presented to the overall bean bag game champions on Tuesday evening, Oct. 7th, starting around 6 pm. The tail-gating game should be a fun way to get acquainted with all the early arrivers and try `n win the first competition of the multi-day event.

There's more in store for all who attend, so if we could recommend one thing…you'd better plan to be at Firebird in person to take in the entire Classic experience. The Classic is going be here before we know it, and every member of the Firebird staff and New family is certainly looking forward to seeing everyone throughout the 8th thru the 12th of October! Rest up!
