The NIGHTFIRE is Idaho’s premiere motorsports event.
The Nightfire returns to Firebird on August 8-11, 2019. Looking back in time, many of the greats have raced at our “Signature Event of the Year”. Drivers like John Force, Don “the Snake” Prudhomme, Ed “the Ace” McCulloch, Tom “the Mongoose” McEwen, “240 Gordie” Bonin and others have collected Nightfire hardware dating back to the beginning.
The drama and excitement of Nitro will be showcased on Friday through Sunday. Professional classes include: AA/Funny Car, AA/Fuel Dragster, AA/Fuel Altered and Pro Modified eliminators. The Nightfire will also showcase the earth-shaking, fire-blasting Jets and the wheelstanding “Outlaw” Stagecoach, too.
Part of a big weekend of racing, Friday is Family Night presented by our friends at The Blower Shop and Idaho’s News Channel 7. Professional qualifying will take place at both 2 and 7 pm, and your ticket is good for both exciting sessions.
Hundreds of racers from 15 states and Canada will battle in the All Access Bracketeer Challenge presented by IWS Sales for a combined purse topping $185,000.
Defending Nightfire champions include:
- AA/Fuel Dragster
- AA/Funny Car
- Tater Baker AA/Funny Car
- AA/Fuel Altered
- Xtreme Pro Modified
