The 47th Annual Little Caesars Pizza Great American Fox Hunt presented by Bronco Motors returns to Firebird on Friday-Saturday, June 14-15.

280 mph fire-blasting Jets will be the feature attraction at this year’s Fox Hunt. In additional, Good Vibrations Motorsports and will also present an amazing line-up of Supercharged Funny Cars, Blown Dragsters and Roadsters at the two-day event. We can’t wait to watch them all qualify and compete at the famed Fox Hunt.

This year’s Fox Hunt will feature Curt White from Billings, Mont., with his 280 mph “Iceman” Jet Dragster. White will be joined by the afterburner king Derek Snelson and his impressive “Tomahawk” Funny Car. And making their debut at Firebird will be Idaho’s very own “Pyromania” Jet Funny owned by Steve Cluck (from Nampa) and driven by former Jaker Allstar Richard Smith. If you’ve never seen a Jet previously, you’re in for a real treat at this year’s Fox Hunt as they look to put on a fire show like never before.

Making his Idaho debut, one of the wildest wheelstanders in North America, “Nitro Mike” will be bring his impressive, flamed PT Cruiser to this year’s Fox Hunt. He is the current Guinness World Record holder for the “Longest Wheelstand by a Wheelie Car,” which was recognized from a performance made in August of 2012 in Earlton, Ontario, Canada. We can’t wait to see Mike Kunz let it rip at Firebird this June!

Adding more icing to the cake, the Boise Muffler/NAPA Gold Cup chase will be contested over two separate days and nights of racing. Showcase eliminators include The Comfort Source Pro Comp class, along with the annual return of the popular Fox eliminator division presented by the Naughty Girls racing club. The Fox class is open exclusively to all ladies that might like to participate for special prize baskets and awards.

Make your plans today to join all the fun of the Famous Firebird Fox Hunt in June!
