GLENDORA, Calif. -- NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series officials announced today the 2010 NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing schedule, which includes an additional event at Firebird Raceway in Boise, Idaho.
The Napa Auto Parts Ignitor has been added to the event schedule for the 2010 season, and will be held April 30-May 2 at Firebird Raceway. The event will feature Nostalgia Nitro Top Fuel dragsters.
The event addition brings the schedule to a total of nine races for the 2010 season, which will begin with the March Meet, March 5-7 at the famed Auto Club Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield, Calif.
"A fixture at the Ignitor for four decades, we're looking forward to the event celebrating its 40th Anniversary next May with the dramatic sights and sounds of 'Nitro,'" said Bill New, general manager, Firebird Raceway. "As the second stop for Top Fuel in the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Series, we feel this will further enhance and elevate one of the premier events on our racing calendar."
In addition to Boise, the series will make stops at Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, Calif., The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Sacramento Raceway in Sacramento, Calif., Speedworld Dragstrip in Wittman, Ariz., and will finish the 2010 season where it all began at the California Hot Rod Reunion at historic Auto Club Famoso Raceway.
"We're looking forward to our third year of the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series and are grateful for the support shown from our affiliate tracks around the country," said Steve Gibbs of the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Series. "The series combined with the Hot Rod Reunions and the NHRA Wally Parks Motorsports Museum demonstrates NHRA's commitment to maintaining the history of our sport."
