The 50th Annual NAPA Auto Parts Ignitor returns to Firebird on May 1-2, 2021. Presented by Peterson Chevrolet, the track’s longest running event will be featuring the opening stop in the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Series.

In celebration of our 50th, ALL KIDS 15 & YOUNGER WILL BE ADMITTED FOR FREE!

The Nitro Opener presented by Stinker Stores will feature the drama and excitement of 250 mph AA/Funny Cars led by reigning NHRA World Champion and defending Nightfire winner Bobby Cottrell.

The first major event of the 2021 Season is steeped in tradition and prestige. The winner of the inaugural Ignitor was none other than Don “the Snake” Prudhomme with his Hot Wheels Funny Car. Teams will be competing at the opening stop for Funny Car points in the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Series at Firebird.

The Ignitor will also host a two-day major bracket tournament for sportsman racers (open to all competitors) in Super Pro, Pro, Sled/Bike and Sportsman. The event will also offer premium points in the Boise Muffler Gold Cup point’s series. Learn more about this exciting new opportunity by opening the flyer.
