We have been extra busy this off-season getting all the final pieces in place for what promises to be one of the best schedules in Firebird history. The color hard-copy brochure has mailed to our extensive data base, and brochures are now available at all Firebird sponsoring companies throughout western Idaho and eastern Oregon.

Starting in late-March and traversing thru the Spring, Summer and Fall, we feel the 2015 Schedule offers a wonderful array of quality family-orientated and action-packed events.

Beginning on March 29th and continuing through October 18th, the calendar of events is chock full of all kinds of races this season. The “big four” are all locked `n loaded. The Ignitor, the Fox Hunt, Pepsi Nightfire and Classic return, along with the Summit E.T. Finals, which is set to take up residency at Firebird over Labor Day weekend.

Advanced tickets are now available for both the Ignitor and Nightfire events. In addition, a pre-entry application is now online for the NAPA Auto Parts Ignitor presented by Peterson Chevrolet.

"All of us in the New family are more than a little excited and pumped about kicking off our 48th year of hosting events at Firebird in 2015," said Marketing Director Brad New. "This year's shcedule has something that appeals to the racers, the fans, our sponsors and anyone else that lives, eats, and sleeps the sport of Drag Racing like we do. The New Crew and our staff look forward to having you and your family join us this season."

Special thanks to all the photographers who gave us the green light to showcase much of their fine work in our Track Schedules this year (and forthcoming Motorsports Annual). Noteworthy - Blair Alderton, Gary Himes and Dave Kommel all get credit for the images on the Schedule cover of Kris Krabill, Tony Bartone, and Ed Jones. For their efforts and that of our design and printing partners, we say thanks for everything. 


As Robin might have exclaimed to Batman in the original hit t.v. series, "Holy Smokes, Batman, the Batmobile is going to appear at the Boise Roadster Show in March!". YES, IT'S OFFICIAL - the Batmobile is coming to this year's Roadster Show. Long considered one of the most famous creations to hit the television screen, the black beauty will be the featured attraction at Expo Idaho over the March 12-15 weekend. Originally commissioned and built by George Barris, the car that first made the Gothem City cape crusaders an instant world-wide sensation will be shown on behalf of Barris Kustom Industries located in North Hollywood, Calif.

One of the premiere automotive shows in the western United States—the 43rd Annual O’Reilly Auto Parts Boise Roadster Show presented by Les Schwab Tires returns to Expo Idaho on Thursday thru Sunday, March 12th-15th.

Show hours are: 4 pm till 9 pm on Thursday, 3 pm till 10 pm on Friday, 10 am till 10 pm on Saturday, and 10 am till 6 pm on Sunday. Advanced tickets are now on sale at O'Reilly Auto Parts stores, your official ticket source for individual adult and kids tickets.

Steeped in tradition, the Roadster Show has been fortunate over the years to attract many of the nation’s most popular show cars, many of which have had direct ties to the motion picture, t.v. and entertainment world. Looking back in time, featured attractions have included the Batmobile, World’s Longest Limo, Daktari, Pizza Wagon, Brinks Express, Fonzie’s Bike, Happy Days Merc, Pool Table Car, Farrah Fawcett’s Corvette, Pinball Wizard, Magnum P.I. Ferrari, Harrah’s Tucker, ZZ Top Eliminator Coupe, Earnhardt & Petty Nascar rides, KITT Trans Am, Playboy Bunny Coach, Wayne Newton’s Clenet, Fast and Furious RX7, Back to the Future DeLorean, Cadzilla, James Dean Merc, Copper-bodied Rolls Royce, Frank Sinatra Ghia, Elvis Cadillac, Big Daddy Top Fueler, Don Prudhomme Funny Car and countless others.

2015 will be no different.

One of many highlights at this year’s western Idaho ISCA Show will be the highly anticipated appearance of the Surf Seeker, one of the wildest creations to hit for the floors of Expo Idaho. The handbuilt Microbus is hands down the closest thing to a real life cartoon character that you'll ever see in person. Ron Berry from St. George, Utah, built the imaginative piece and will be on hand to provide insight into his amazing creation.

We first met Ron at the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, Calif., and there's no doubt about it,  he is one talented builder. His vision is quite extraordinary. When you see the bus in person, we think you'll agree with us that it is one of the most impressive show cars in recent memory.

To see more about what this bus looks like inside `n out, check out this cool YouTube video at:

From the hit t.v. show Bitchin' Rides on the Velocity channel, Dave Kindig will be attending the Roadster Show with two of his latest builds. Two cars that were featured on his t.v. show are certain to dazzle all those who attend this year's show. Better yet, Dave will be on hand throughout the weekend, which will give you an opportunity to meet the award winning builder from Salt Lake City.

Thanks to Marvel Comics, kids will get an opportunity to meet and greet not one, but two Super Hero’s during the show weekend. The Amazing Spiderman direct from Marvel will appear throughout the day and evening on Saturday. Then Sunday, we are thrilled to welcome Iron Man, who will be on hand for a special autograph session. Be sure and bring your camera both days for a photo opportunity with your son or daughter.

Sanctioned by the International Show Car Association, the Roadster Show is a key Western Division point’s stop in the Summit Show Car Series. Many of the nearly 200 competitors will be gunning for a shot at the crown jewel Goldmark title, along with quite an assortment of awards and prizes.

The line-up of cars and trucks for this year's show is just simply spectacular. Over $6 million dollars of automotive excellence will be assembled inside the three building Expo Idaho complex located at the corner of Glenwood & Chinden in Boise.

If you've not had the chance to attend the Roadster Show in recent years, you're not gonna want to miss this year's show. Plus it’s a great way to kick those winter blues.

NHRA Chassis Certification Seminar will take place on Saturday, March 14th, from 9 am – 3 pm, in the Expo Idaho general parking lot (south). Please call the Firebird offices at 208 938-8986 or drop us an email if you’d like us to add your name to the chassis sign-up list. Also – you can save your postage and get pre-registered for the 45th Annual NAPA Ignitor-Lucas Oil Drag Race Series at the Firebird booth inside Expo Idaho. We will also have Gold Cup registrations and permanent number cards available (for new numbers or renewals, along with NHRA Rule Books if you'd like to purchase one at our booth). The Firebird booth will be located near the main event stage, so stop by and say hi.

In addition, we will be providing Extended Tech Inspection (E.T.I.) at the same time as the NHRA Chassis Certification. To receive an E.T.I., racers must maintain a current NHRA membership and NHRA competition number. Advance notification is requested thru the Firebird office by either email or over the phone.
