Congratulations to every member of the Firebird team for winning the 2023 Manager’s Cup at the Summit E.T. Finals staged at Woodburn Dragstrip outside Woodburn, Oregon.
Sixty-two of Firebird’s top racers competed over the course of the August 30-Sept. 4, special event.
Competing in the Race of Champions, both Zach Meziere (Super Pro) and Paxton Squire (Jr. Street) earned victories, while Roy Barrera (Bike/Sled) was runner-up. Team Firebird was deadlocked with the home track Woodburn team, but earned the title by way of the divisional tie-breaker. Congratulations to everyone who supported this year’s amazing effort!!!
Earlier in the day (on Monday), both Zach Meziere (SP) and Cody Waisner (SM) swept main event victories in the Team Finals classes. Sean Shaffer also earned the Best Appearing Super Pro dragster plaque, which was selected by the Division 6 Certification team.
