Firebird will play host to the NAPA Auto Parts Halloween Classic XXIX presented by Mirage Trailers on Wednesday-Sunday, October 5-9, 2022.

Event Details

Firebird Raceway is a NHRA Drag Racing facility, which started in 1968. Today, Idaho's premiere racing venue is recognized and listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Although the track retains much of its original ambiance, vibe and character, Firebird is a first-class venue that people of all ages can enjoy. We offer delicious food and beverages, along with a merchandise store called the Sport Shop featuring a full line of colorful shirts, sweatshirts, hats and more. We look forward to seeing you and your family this season in the Treasure Valley foothills.

Halloween Classic additional information:

Additional racer information - the bonus races (and Wed. test day punch card): a racer is required to be registered into the Classic event on Saturday/Sunday in Super Pro, Pro, Heavy, Sportsman or Sled/Bike (first) to be eligible for Wednesday testing (which you may purchase) or any of the bonus races on Thursday and Friday. Racers who "qualify" for the Club Runoffs on Wed. afternoon, are also required to register for Sat/Sun of the Classic (class of choice). There is not a separate entry fee to compete in the Club runoff. There is not an additional fee to compete in Club Runoff if qualified during the 2022 six-race Club series. The Top Gun Shootout is a separate entry fee should you only wish to run this eliminator (Sat/Sun Classic entry is not a pre-requisite for Top Gun).

Note: on the first two parking days of the Classic, gates could open earlier than posted should the line-up of trailers on the entrance road reach Hwy 16, which requires us to open for packet pick-up and parking. Please note: if you'd like to park with someone (or friends and family), then arrive at the raceway at the same time. No saving of pit spots. Also, racers may leave trailers overnight on Sunday (and depart on Monday).
