The facility was under Firebird Raceway. Now, it's known as "Wild Horse Pass Raceway", owned and operated by the Indian tribe that also runs the Casino near by. As with previous name, ALL of the vendors are a rip-off operation, taking advantage of race fans with OVER PRICED drinks and food...American capitalism at it's worst. Raceway itself remains the same... More

Eery February the NHRA absolutely rocks Firebird International Raceway with a weekend of professional drag racing. The new ownership has made some much needed improvements and the venue provides some of the best racing action anywhere.

Went to see drag boat races for the first time in my life here. It was fun. The facility is well designed and would be good for families that love racing.

Been to many great events at this Raceway, it can get hot, so bring lots of water and sunscreen. pay parking in the lot, no other parking around, which is fine. Depending on your event, you can sometimes get cheap tickets in the parking lot, we've done this a couple times and ended up with front row rock star seating... More

Spent the weekend at this race park for the NHRA Winter Nationals - the facility was clean, and very capable of handling such a huge event. Had tickets to the P3 Section, row B 10-11 and they were just like being down on the track - no interferences, great access to the pits. They brought in tons of porta pottys... More

this site is around the corner from my home and I have not seen anything posted in 2014. I have no idea of what may be happening there.

new operator is doing a lot to improve this place for drag racing, starting with the track itself... I'm sure it'll be even more enhanced for those of us in suites and media center come the 2015 event - very pleased with upgrades!

I was staying at Sheraton Wild Horse Pass last spring. On Saturday night March 30th, as I was coming back to the resort, there was a massive traffic jam on I-10 and on the ramp leading to it. It seemed all the cars were fighting to get into Firebird. Later that night there was a great fireworks show over the... More
