All of us at Firebird are excited to play host to the prestigious NHRA Summit E.T. Finals over Labor Day – 2018. Racers from throughout the northwest and western Canada will be making the trek to western Idaho over the August 30-31, Sept. 1-2 weekend.
We will be looking to assemble the “best” 60 Gold Cup racers to compete on this year’s Firebird team. More than fifteen Division 6 member tracks will be competing for both the Track Manager’s Cup (Sat) and the Track Team Championship (Sun).
Thursday will offer a test `n tune day. Friday will feature a full slate of Gambler classes and time trials. Saturday is the Race of Champions. And Sunday will be the battle for the 2018 Track Team Championship. It’s four non-stop days of racing.
Winners in the Race of Champions (Sat) will earn a spot to run for the Summit national championship. Each of the division champions from across the country will compete at the Auto Club NHRA Finals at the L.A. County Fairplex in Pomona, Calif.
Not many other events all season long match the fun and atmosphere of the E.T. Finals. Team spirit is amazing. The event offers a chance to hang out with fellow racers and teammates with one common goal in mind, to win individual and team titles! Toss in a purse topping $30,000 in prize money and you have the makings of an extraordinary event.
Looking ahead, the Team Finals will move to Pacific Raceway in Kent, Wash., over Labor Day – 2019.
