The incredible NAPA Auto Parts Halloween Classic XXIX presented by Mirage Trailers is set for five days and nights: October 5-9.

No other event all season long matches the sheer volume and quantity of racing that takes place during the last major racing stop of the season. Full of all kinds of surprises, the Halloween Classic has become one of Firebird’s grandest happenings.

We can’t wait for the return of trick or treating to kid’s games, along with all the other fun and activities planned for Classic XXIX. If you can only attend one day of the event, Saturday (10/8) is the big day! We will offer games for the kids, a kid’s costume contest, pumpkin carving, coloring contest, and trick or treating from trailer to trailer thru the pit area. Adults will get an opportunity to show off their costumes (contest) following the conclusion of the Air Show on Sat. night.

The Club Challenge Runoffs will take place Wednesday afternoon. The wild Air Firebird Wheelstanding super show returns center-stage on Saturday evening. The event will also crown a Classic Grand Champion, which will pit the major eliminator winners at day’s end Sunday.

The Lucas Oil Top Gun Shootout returns, too. The fastest open wheelers will square off with the quickest full bodied rides.

Online registration (for entries, crew passes, tickets, etc.) is now live for the Classic, so don’t wait to secure your spot in Classic XXIX!
