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.

In accordance with Firebird's Health and Safety Plan, physical and social distancing will be encouraged throughout the facility including the grandstands. Our guidelines are outlined on the Firebird website at (click on link):
