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 corporation, please let's help the Earth and lead in some green policies.

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 the pits is really a nice way for the NHRA to build its fan base in my view.

We stood down by the finish line and did not sit in our seats.

It was fun to see all the different classes of cars there and the true motorsports racers. Of course the pros were the stars of the show but the mom and pop small guys really had some cool cars.

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 traffic. There was shuttle service in the parking lot and ticket booths at both sides of the track. Very much improved!
Only complaint -I couldn't find caramel corn!

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 with ZERO improvements from previous owner, invocation is now done with Indian prayer which 99% of the race fans could care less about followed by some Indian song that many careless more than the invocation.

Thanks for the race but, I'm not into that heritage stuffed down MY throat.

I'll go back to the races again but, I just need to put up with all the heritage being shoved down MY throat again...Thanks, Wild Horse Pass.

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.

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 for cheaper than reg. seats.

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 which were a life saver. Went back on the following Tues & Wed for Frank Hawley's racing school and the crew from Wildhorse had things well under control preparing for the next upcoming event (Div. drag racing). The track was sticky and perfect - great place to race.

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.
