The 29th edition of the Spring Warm Up & Swap Meet returns April 7-8.  A staple on the Firebird racing calendar for nearly three decades, the event features an automotive swap meet and full day of testing on the dragstrip.

Friday is traditionally set-up day for all the vendors (or early Saturday morning) and early bird racer pit parking. The main day for the Spring Automotive Swap Meet is Saturday.

Online registration for vendor space, racer test entry or an event pass can now be secured for this annual tradition at Firebird.
