Cardinal stadium?  They have auxilliary parking lots without light poles and plenty of room.  Somebody call Bidwill.  Have their people call my people and make it happen.

That's where I had my first "drift event". The aux parking lot by Kellis High has only been used once. Ever.  And that was the Super Bowl.   

The problem tho is there are houses and apartments all around those lots.

Firebird isn't closing for certain yet. The Indians what to try and run it.
When they fail they will close it haha. Probably build another golf course/hotel.
I hope they succeed though. Firebird definitely knows drifting has high driver attendance and WAY higher spectator attendance then dragging and even some road racing on a similar level.
Obviously top fuel is their bread and butter but other then that weekend dragging isn't as appealing as cars sideways on fire.
Honestly just like PIR is open for NASCAR only, firebird can just be open for top fuel, boat racing, off road, and bonderaunt. Cut the smaller organizations out.

And trail by fire has tried just about every place in the valley for events. You are going to have to go to Tucson or further if firebird closes _

I want to move to Washington so bad because of this.  There are some awesome events in the PNW.

Why do you need a dual caliper set up.... Unless you can use third or are at a go kart track you don't even need a handbrake.

I use third. And since my situation makes it so I can't go to the track till I move out makes sense to build my car before I go drifting again.
