GOLD CUP RACING dates back to 1971 when Firebird awarded Track Championships for the very first time. Fast forward over four decades and we honestly couldn’t be any more excited than we are right now for the 2012 season. It has all the makings of achieving one of the best to date. We take pride in offering Gold Cup Championship racing on a variety of dates for Super Pro, Pro, Sled/Bike & Sportsman, in addition to our two Junior Dragster eliminators. We’d like to pass along our appreciation to Boise Muffler for endorsing the 2012 Season Championships.
At the same time, special thanks goes out to eliminator sponsors: Kidd Performance & Dyno, Performance Solutions, United Oil, Woody’s Outdoor Power and Meadow Gold for their commitment to the Firebird racing scene. Additionally Firebird will field a team of 58 racers at the NHRA Summit E.T. Finals, which will take place in Seattle over Labor Day weekend. Pursuing our eighth Northwest Division 6 Team title, the best 58 Idaho and eastern Oregon racers will be attempting to “DominEIGHT” the top race teams from Washington, Oregon, Montana, British Columbia, and Alberta, at the Team Finals.
In addition, championships will be contested this season in High School, Alumni, Club, Street Bike, Nostalgia, Outlaw Street, Sport Compact, Street Truck and Super Shifter.
Good luck to everyone who desires to pursue a Firebird track championship this season—from your friends in racing,
The NEW CREW and FIREBIRD STAFF
