AMERICAN CLASSIFIEDS SWAP MEET THIS SATURDAY
It’s time to focus our attention on the 21st edition of the Spring Warm-up & Swap Meet presented by American Classifieds. The first major event of the new season is set for this Saturday, April 4th. The full day of activities will include a big day of unlimited test `n tune runs, along with the biggest automotive swap meet in the five-state intermountain west. Hundreds of vendors and thousands of buyers will make their annual trek to Firebird for all kinds of parts, cars, trucks, collectibles and much more.
Vendor gates open this Friday, April 3rd, no later than 2 pm (or earlier, should the line reach the highway) and stay open until 6:30 pm. Pre-event race car parking will be conducted on Friday, too, for racers hoping to get a jump start on Saturday’s testing runs that begin at 10:30 am. Admission runs $7, kids 6-12 are $3 and 5 & underfree. The day will include testing, which runs $30 (plus $6 for a 2015 Seasonal Number).
Vendor (10’ x 20’) spots run $25. All vendors are required by state law to fill out an Idaho State Form ST-124 for resale. You will have the opportunity to fill out the required form at the event during check-in.
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone at the “Swap till ya Drop” experience this Saturday. By all the early phone calls, emails and swap banter, it’s shaping up to be one fantastic event! If we can pass along one word of advise: “don’t be late - `cause you might miss the deal you’ve really been searching for.”

PERHAPS YOU SHOULD CONSIDER A MARKETING PROGRAM AT FIREBIRD THIS SEASON
We are so fortunate at Firebird to have quite a variety of quality companies aligned with various marketing and advertising programs at the track. You see it in all of our signage at the raceway or in the pages of our all-color 2015 Motorsports Annual. Many other companies are involved as title or presenting sponsors of events, eliminators and the season-long track point's series. As you've heard us say many times in the past and we'll certainly continue into the future, "remember to support those entities that get behind the racing scene at Firebird". Without them, we certainly wouldn't be the first-class facility we are today.
Pictured above, Firebird Marketing Director Brad New is joined by Ron Nichols hanging a new sign for new track sponsor Gunnwear, which is located on Chinden Blvd. in Garden City. They offer screen-printing, design and embroidery for any and all racers. It's companies like this one and many others that are actively involved supporting Firebird.
If you own a business or happen to work for a company that likes what we do at Firebird and want to reach more customers, feel free to give us a call. Brad would be glad to send along information on our 2015 Marketing Opportunities rate card or custom create something that might fit your business whether it's small, medium or large.
Thanks to everyone who endorses Firebird today. Indirectly, it's through this investment that we are able to continue making updates and enhancements each and every season.
