For those of you who haven’t heard the news just yet,
we are proud to announce the addition of a very beautiful and
functional Jet Track Dryer. Thanks to a variety of companies who
supported this effort, the Jet Express, as we’ve coined it, is a
valuable asset to have when Mother Nature decides to interrupt one
of our major events. Although a rarity in our market, which
traditionally receives around 11 inches of precipitation during an
entire calendar year, it is nice know when you attend races like the
Ignitor, Nightfire or Halloween Classic, this tool will now be
available for us to operate.
There are a number of entities
that are credited with pulling this significant feat off. We
certainly couldn’t have made it all happen without the likes of Ron
Liese at Equipment Consultants, Tim Ketlinski at Qualafab, Aaron
& Gale Sasser at Lasasco, Tim Wallace at Westside Bodyworks,
Rene Gonzalez at Signs Now on Orchard, Dave Barcelon at Truck Town
Trailer Sales or Darin Bay & Bill Hosford who operate a Jet fab
shop west of Portland.
It was just over three years in the
works. And by all account, it surpassed all our expectations. To
each of those who supported this effort—you all deserve an A+ from
everyone in the racing community and the New family. To learn more
about how it all started, evolved and came to happen, the whole
story is profiled in more detail with photos here: (More of the story)
HEADER WEEKEND ON DECK
you’re not doing anything on Friday or Sunday this weekend, why not
come on out to Firebird. First off, the Fairly Reliable Bob’s Club
Challenge finals are Friday, Sept. 12th. Then Sunday, we wrap up the
titles in the Fall High School & Alumni Series. In addition,
both the Quick and Street Import classes and Junior Thunder &
Lightning divisions will be contested, too.
Friday opens at 2

first round of racing at 2 pm. At each event: Adults are $11, kids
6-12 are $3, and toddler’s 5 & under are free.
will see one of the most intense point’s battles in Club history. In
the Silver Cup, the Melba Outlaws hold a very slim lead over PSI
Racing and the Naughty Girls, while both the Mopars Unlimited and
Valley Vettes round out the top five.
The Bronze Cup sees the
Hot Shots leading the way. The top five is rounded out by the Kuna
Draggers, Valley Corvettes, Barely Street Legal and Damage,
The Copper Cup is far from over, too. The Modern Rodders
are presently leading all challengers. The Bowtie Bandits are
second, while Idaho Turbo Diesel, Mad Moose, Mission Impossible and
Loco Motion occupy second thru sixth.
All we know for certain
is that it’s going to be one terrific night of racing.

win its first year-end championship over Meridian in the AAA Series,
while Kuna is just six rounds in front of Middleton in the AA
Individually, Chris Wingert is currently first,
while Courtney Alley and Rich Pedraza Jr. are a close second. In

only 3 points in front of Mike Dome. In Street Import, Troy McDonald
leads Aaron McCoy by just one round of racing.
Thunder and Lightning ranks are also going right down to the wire.
Both categories begin a three-race, three-week stretch run that will
wrap up the year on Saturday, Sept. 27th.
