From John Kirkbride to High Performance Pontiac Online readers:
The Third Annual BAN ONE Firebird and TA show is set for May 15, 2010. at Summit Racing’s Superstore in Atlanta. This will be our 3rd show and if we grow at the rate we have the previous two years we expect to have about 100 participants this year. Additionally, while at the TA Nats this year I was approached by the organizers of the Bandit Run who thought it may be good for them and the BAN ONE show to have our events scheduled so they can build off of each other.
That said, the BAN ONE show will be on Sat, 15 May in McDonough, GA and the BANDIT RUN will start the next day on Sun, 16 May from Jonesboro, GA (located just 20 minutes away). Jonesboro served as the town “Texarkana” in the movie S&B and McDonough (where the BAN ONE Show is at) served as a filming location for S&B as well.
I tell you all that to say this....the center of the Firebird Universe will be in McDonough and Jonesboro, GA the weekend of 15-16 May. If all goes well, this could be the start of a multi-day show. I would like to invite you and HPP to come to both these events. There will no doubt be plenty of cars that could be considered for later features in HPP.
In the past we have had participants from VA, KY, AL, FL, MS, VA, MD, NC, SC, and FL (10 states) and enjoy a modest growth rate and good reputation in the Firebird community.
We have over 80 awards and 3 classes per Generation (Original, Modified and Custom) for a total of 12 classes. We have 5 awards per class + specialty awards.
We will have Food, DJ, 50/50 and lots of door prizes provided by Summit and our other sponsors. We will also have a window decal that can be applied to the inside of your car window letting everyone know your car has participated in the BAN ONE Show.
