We are excited to unveil the 2019 Drag Racing Schedule at Firebird. This year’s calendar of events starts in late March and finishes at the end of October.
As a prelude to the drag racing season, the year kicks off at Expo Idaho with the 47th Annual O’Reilly Auto Parts Boise Roadster Show. Presented by Les Schwab Tires, the ISCA Summit Show Car Series event returns March 8-10.
Firebird’s “Big Three” return on familiar weekends. The 49th Annual NAPA Ignitor is set for May 2-5. As the track’s longest running event, we will play host to the opening Lucas Oil Drag Race Series meet in the Northwest Division. Additionally, the Ignitor will be second AA/Funny Car stop in the NHRA Heritage Series.
In August, Firebird’s “signature event”, the Pepsi Nightfire Nationals will feature both AA/Funny Car and Top Fuel for Heritage Series championship points. AA/Fuel Altereds, Pro Modified Doorslammers, Jets and a Wheelstander will compete nightly under the lights, too. We’re also very excited to be the home of the oldest major bracket tournament in North America. The Bracketeers will showcase Firebird’s richest sportsman purse of the season. Mark your calendars for the weekend of August 8-11. We guarantee it will be the “RACE OF THE YEAR“!
The NAPA Halloween Classic returns October 9-13, Classic XXVI will be the Halloween party of the year for hundreds of racers and families attending from all over the west.
Start making your plans today. We will have a full color brochure printed in February, so you can also have a hard-copy in hand, too.
