||NHRA WESTERN CONFERENCE FINALS AT BANDIMERE SPEEDWAY
We want to tip our hats to all five of
the Team Firebird Junior point’s competitors and their families who made
the long distance trek to Denver, Colorado, home of Bandimere Speedway
and the NHRA Jr. Drag Racing League Western Conference Finals.
Even though thunder storms and challenging weather affected the early
part of the week long event, the Idaho racers showed real perseverance
throughout the national event for Junior Dragster participants.
Congratulations to Alex Steen, who finished runner-up overall in the 13
year old division.
Both Clayton Steen and Doug Alwine were good enough to email us some of
the results and news from the event.
We understand that Division 6 Jr. Thunder champion Chandler Steen made
it all the way to the semi-finals in the 10 year old shootout. Paige
Harris showed impressively, too, finishing runner-up in the 10.90 index
Both Casey Compton and Kaylessa Alwine represented the Firebird Team in
fine fashion, too.
Clayton Steen wanted everyone at Firebird to know, “I just want to say
thank you(!!) again to you and your family for giving us the opportunity
to race at your facility. It has been a wonderful 6 years and my boys
have learned a lot.”
To all those drivers who raced on behalf of Firebird and Division 6, we
say congratulations for all your efforts. We look forward to seeing you
and everyone else in the Thunder and Lightning classes throughout the
balance of the 2011 Meadow Gold point’s chase.
We’d like to say thanks to special thanks to both Andrea Harris and
Shauna for supplying us all the fun photos from the weekend.
