The off-season could best described by the New Crew as truthfully the on-season given the propensity of upgrades and improvements underway at the raceway.
In a move to further elevate and enhance the race facility, it has been a beehive a activity and work at the track starting the day after the final event of the season.
The concrete pads were laser profiled by Ellis Profiling and diamond ground by Edge Grinding the first weekend of November. The pads are in the process of being finely polished by a team headed up by Jeff Fetty with high-end terrazzo diamond polishers.

Concurrently, McAlvain Construction, one of the premiere concrete companies in the Pacific Northwest earned the bid to extend the concrete surface by 200’ to nearly half track under the guidance and insight of a number of track and industry experts. Now completed, it is impressive to say the least. In addition, the water boxes behind the starting line were also removed and replaced.
Dedicated to further enhancing the Firebird facility, general manager Scott New conveyed, “All of us in the New family are committed to providing racers and our fans a first-rate facility to participate at and enjoy. This is a pledge on behalf of everyone who supports our race track and our long-term vision of producing quality events throughout our racing calendar starting in March and continuing through October. We can’t wait for 2015!”


The 47th edition of the Firebird Award’s Banquet officially brought the 2014 NHRA Drag Racing Season to a close on Saturday night, November 22nd. Held in the Ballroom of The Riverside Hotel in Boise, the Banquet featured an evening packed with awards, which included upwards of $15,000 in cash and prizes. Post Banquet festivities went till the wee hours of the morning as many gathered in the Aspen room after the conclusion of the awards program for music, socializing, dancing and cocktails.

The festive night included all the presentations in the Boise Muffler Gold Cup Championships. All of the top finishers in the Boise Muffler Gold Cup Series were recognized, along with United Dairymen of Idaho High School & Alumni Championships, Junior program, Lyle Pearson Acura Sport Compact Series, Carl’s Cycle Sales Street Bike, Fairly Reliable Bob’s Club Championships, and other points chases during the evening.

Voted on by his piers, Tyler Rush was awarded Bracket Racer of the Year. Rush also won his second consecutive Sportsman Track Championship. Sweeping honors for "Lady Driver of the Year" was Casey Compton.


Annually, the New family selects one person for the title of Racemaster. Veteran racer Stan Keller was presented the 28th Racemaster award at the Firebird Award’s Banquet. Keller first started racing at Firebird in the mid-70’s. Looking back in time, Stan has been active in not only racing his familiar four-speed Plymouth Roadrunner at Firebird for the past four-plus decades, but also operates Oakley Moody Service in downtown Boise. He was joined at the Banquet by his wife Robin, son Anthony and his wife Terra. He was awarded the special plaque by former Racemaster recipient Rod Page with Boise Muffler, above left.

Special thanks to Alex Charlton for photographing the event who was (joined by Gary Himes who shared many images from throughout the season on the big screen for all to enjoy), along with Matt Greenway for his engergized music presentation and special lighting.
