Photo 2/19   |   Phoenix welcomed sport truck enthusiasts with magnificent weather this past October, making our action-packed weekend of fun at Firebird Raceway even more enjoyable.
If you're looking for an action-packed sport truck event and you haven't attended our Truckin' & 4x4 Nationals in October, you're missing out. This past year, the usual searing desert heat of Phoenix's aptly named Valley of the Sun took a vacation, presenting showgoers over the weekend of October 23-24 with mild but sunny weather in the mid-80s. It was perfect weather to check out all the custom show trucks, racing Monster Trucks, the quick quarter-mile action, and all the other activities we designed to make this an enjoyable, entertaining as well informative event.
The action started at 9:00 a.m. Saturday, with the truck drags, Meguiar's show 'n' shine, Toughest Truck championship heats, King of the Hill rockcrawl, and Your Driving Adventure, where you got to road-test most of the new trucks on the market. The Monster Trucks started catching big air at 11:00 a.m., with the Toughest Truck competition moving to its trophy dash phase at 4:30 p.m. Sunday's schedule mirrored Saturday's, except the competition heated up, as the finals neared the end-of-day awards and we added the Miss Truckin' & 4x4 swimsuit competition. And if that wasn't enough, just about all the great aftermarket companies with cool product and gear for your sport truck were present with their sharpest technical minds to help you get the gear you need to build your truck.
What more can we say? If you're in the Southwest or plan to visit there in October, plan on attending our Truckin' & 4x4 Nationals at Firebird Raceway near Phoenix. For more information on 2004's event or to register for this year's event, contact the Firebird box office at (602) 268-0200, or go to www.firebirdraceway.com.
