I figured the parking would be a bit easier with such a small crowd of circa 5,000 but it was not the best. Once in the area it was wonderful. Having each ticket get you into... read more

Nice venue for the Lucas Oil Drag Boat races. We came on Sunday morning and there was still trash all over the stands and in the bathrooms and on the bridge over from the previous day. I do think this should have been cleaned up. Plenty of trash cans around on the main avenue. However, NO recycling cans. As a... More

The new management has parking, shuttle service and ticket sales well thought out and well placed. They over-sold General Admission at the last NHRA National, but that just means we'll get reserved seats next time. The vendors are more organized, the midway was just as entertaining and the employees seemed to care about the guests - checking tickets, & directing... More

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
