OUR STORY

Originating in 1968, Firebird Raceway is a quarter-mile drag racing facility that was created to provide family entertainment at an affordable cost. Over the course of nearly five decades, Firebird has stayed true to that founding principle, as more than fifty events are offered during the April to October drag racing season.

Firebird has been continuously operated by the New family and its staff since its inception. We are very proud to be aligned with and a member track of the National Hot Rod Association. All of us at Firebird are dedicated to providing a first-class racing facility for racers and fans of all ages to enjoy drag racing at its finest. It’s a rather simple phrase, but we like to call it the Firebird Experience. We look forward to having you and your family join us in 2017.

Thank you to our sponsors
