FIREBIRD CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF DRAG RACING
FROM SIMPLE BEGINNINGS, FIREBIRD RACEWAY HAS ESTABLISHED ITSELF AS ONE OF THE PREEMINENT DRAG RACING FACILITIES IN THE GREAT NORTHWEST. OPENING IN 1968, THE IDAHO RACING COMPLEX HAS BEEN OPERATED BY THE NEW FAMILY SINCE ITS INCEPTION. Looking back, the grand opener was quite a day in Firebird history as the Hemi
Under Glass wheelstander performed in front of a crowd so large they had to close the gates when they ran out of parking.
Staples on the Firebird drag racing schedule include the
Ignitor and Nightfire events. Don
Prudhomme was the first Funny
Car champion of Firebird’s oldest event back in 1971. This year’s NAPA
Ignitor Nitro Opener will return on May 5-7.
Recognized as Firebird’s signature event, the Pepsi Nightfire Nationals will be staged during the Aug. 10-13 weekend.
