STINKER STORES SEASON OPENER SET FOR THIS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY
Next up, the 10th Annual Stinker Stores SEASON OPENER is set to take place Saturday and Sunday, April 19-20. The opening weekend for round points will feature nearly every point's class and it's not just one, but TWO back-to-back days of racing. The event is open to any and all participants that might like to race, license or test.
Gates will open daily at 9 am, followed by time trials from 10 am until 1:30 pm, and first round of eliminations at 2 pm, on Saturday and Sunday. Since Sunday (this year) is Easter, we are also planning an Easter Egg Hunt for all the kids starting around 1:15 pm on Sunday. The event flyer (.pdf) is located under Upcoming Events in the left hand column of this front page.
The Opener will be the first opportunity to earn round points this season in a multitude of eliminators. It is the official kickoff to the Boise Muffler Gold Cup Series. The two-day race will feature racing in the: Kidd Performance Super Pro, Performance Solutions Pro, United Oil Sportsman, Woody’s Sled/Bike, Jr. Dragster, Capitol City Transmission Nostalgia, Carl’s Cycle Sales Street Bike, Moffitt & Bratton Outlaw Street, Waynes Transmissions Street Truck and Rich’s Auto Care & Dyno Super Shifter division.
Defending Season Opener winners include: Troy Thomas/Sean Shaffer-Super Pro, Chad Campbell/Steve Pyburn- Pro, Rex Petersen/Levi Burlile-Sportsman, Chase Bittick/Scott Grondahl-Sled/Bike, Wes Morris/John Burke Jr.-Jr. Dragster, David Kletzien (both days)-Street Bike, Ashton Davis (both days)-Street Truck, Dan Hurlbert/Sharlene Lancaster-Outlaw Street, Carl Downard/Carl Youngstrom–Super Shifter, and Carl Youngstrom/Jeffrey Langan-Nostalgia.
LAND OF THE LEADERS E.T. CHALLENGE KICKS OFF THIS SUNDAY
Sunday will mark the start of the Division 6 Land of the Leaders Challenge in Super Pro, Pro, Sportsman, Sled/Bike, and Jr. Dragster, a 4-race point’s chase at Firebird ranking racers (based on round wins) amongst all participating tracks in the northwest. This special series pits the top earning "points" competitors from Firebird against the likes of Woodburn, Bremerton, Pacific, Mission and all the other Division 6 tracks. Past winners have included the likes of Jacob Wood and Craig Jensen from Firebird.
Specific dates for the 4-race series include: April 20, May 18, June 21, and July 26. The overall champions (those who earn the largest number of round wins/points over the course of the four events) from all northwest tracks will earn a NHRA Wally trophy and jacket.
EASTER WILL BE CELEBRATED WITH BIG EASTER EGG HUNT ON SUNDAY
Remember to bring all your kids, grandkids, neighbor kids and any other young boys or girls to Sunday's Easter Egg Hunt. We will be showcasing three different age divisions, all of which will get an opportunity to chase for eggs and special grand prize "Golden Eggs". Thanks to Stinker Stores, they will be helping present this year's Grand Prize baskets, which will be awarded to the overall winners. The Hunt will take place at approximate 1 pm before the start of eliminations at 2 pm for the final day of the Season Opener. We've hosted a number of Easter Egg Hunts over the past many seasons (since Easter weekend tends to change dates every year), including this adorable photo from Andrea Harris, taken during last year's Easter event. Rumor has it the Easter Bunny may make an appearance (along with the Stinker Skunk and Big Red, the Firebird track mascot, too) during the Opener on Sunday!
