Heavy 'Necking

Rednecks like things that go pop! Just-opened beer cans. Guns. Fireworks. Funny cars jolting off the starter’s line with concussive force. Firebird International Raceway will transform such ’neck-friendly ear and eye candy, sans the guns, into one huge blowout during the Coors Light Summer Spectacular. Funny cars and jet cars will go head to head in the ultimate test of speed while Robosaurus –- the big, bad, vehicle-chomping bully that stands 42 feet high –- will get spectators hootin’ and a-hollerin’, especially after the beer starts to go down like water. A fireworks display will punctuate the festivities.
