    Default Firebird Update?

    Anybody know what the status is between the tribe and committees and etc?? More importantly, will this get resolved before the World Finals?

    my understanding is that Lucas Oil officials made an announcement at the Irvine drivers meeting the world finals were a go. someone who was actually at the drivers meeting might want to chime in.

    Lucas Oil has a 5 year deal for 2 DBR's / year and the Off-roads trucks series. The San Diego race has been moved to the Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park (formerly Firebird). Same time slot. It's official.

    The Firebird name belongs to the Native Americans.It was called Firebird long before Cheap Charlie showed up.

    well, if that were the case they should have kept it since everybody knew what it was. now you gotta use 5 different words for it instead of just one.
    I think he took all the firebird signs home with him. his yards gotta look like crap...

    Firebird lake was built in 1974.The grandstands were built in 1978.Cheap Charlie showed up in 1983 with a 30 year lease.He named his
    raceway park after the lake.
    It is still Firebird Lake but is part of the new Wild Horse Pass Pass Motorsports Park.
    If you find that 5 words is to hard to say,Ya can always just say PHOENIX.

    or chandler... I don't think you'll see anything there that refers to the lake or anywhere else as "firebird". ca never had a 30 year lease. he had 5 to 7 year leases, renegotiated several times over 30 years.
