Default Temporary Postponement

Guys ,we are tentatively scheduled for Saturday, April 27th.

I say tentatively, because there is a whole lot of work to be done beforehand.

Some of the equipment has not been purchased yet, staff has not been hired and so on..
This will all be assessed as soon as the current occupant has vacated the premises...
So, no events , nostalgic or otherwise will take place until this happens..
But look for the grand re-opening with The Southwest Nostalgia Drags..soon

Any updates? I read on another site that the grandstands are being taken down also that the tribe has put everything at ex-Firebird on hold.

There were some grandstands that weren't anchored properly.
Those repairs may be what you heard about.
I was told they HAVE purchased the timing and scoring equipment .
They ARE progressing...towards what date? Sorry, I don't know that yet.

Mark, I'm the organizer and spokesman for NHRA Heritage Jr Fuel, and I was wondering if we could work together on getting booked into some tracks.
What I'm hoping for is maybe a Heritage points race or Nostalgia race at Firebird or maybe a Nostalgia race in Tucson. We might be able to combine of groups with a Nostalgia event a track is already planning.
I have already talked to couple of tracks that are interested.

So when you have time, call me , 805-444-4489, to see what we can put together.
Thanks, Jon Hansen, from Hammer/ Hansen/ Hook, and Ramay, 2013 March Meet JrFuel winners, 4 time MM winners, and 3 time Heritage Series Champions

Have they hired a new track manager yet? I understand they have upper management in place but not the operation people. Lots of money need to be spent on track equiptment as I was told Charlie took most of it with him.

Yes they have.
I met him today..He starts officially on June 1st..He will step forward then.

NEW Name coming too. Charlie had registered the Firebird name and was causing grief so they decided start clean with a new name and image, hopefully.

I'm enthusiastic about the current situation and may be making an announcement here soon.
