The incredible NAPA Auto Parts Halloween Classic XXVI event returns over five days and nights on October 9-13, 2019.

No other event all season long matches the sheer volume and quantity of racing that takes place during the last racing stop of the season. Full of all kinds of surprises, the Halloween Classic has become one of Firebird’s grandest happenings. From trick or treating to kid’s games, it is literally a drag racing marathon of fun.

The Club Challenge Runoffs will take place Wednesday evening. The wild Air Firebird Wheelstanding super show returns center-stage on Saturday night. 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.

In total, the Halloween Classic posts a cash and merchandise purse topping $40,000 as over 500 racers attend our season closing boo bash.
