Staff Reports | Digital Free Press

With support from the Wild Horse Pass Development Authority and the Gila River Indian Community, the Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park is now Firebird Motorsports Park.

The news was announced today live on the NHRA YouTube channel during the Performance Racing Industry show in Indianapolis.

Along with the name change also comes a new logo. The facility will be led by track manager Casey Buckman and business administrator Connie Bopp, who combined bring more than 50 years of motorsports industry experience, according to a press release.

“As someone who grew up going to events at the facility when it was called Firebird, I am excited to be honoring the history of the past 40 years and look forward to adding to the legacy for years to come,” said Mr. Buckman.

The facility offers three road course circuits, acres of pavement for autocross and skidpad use, ¼ mile NHRA Drag Strip, drag boat racing, off-road truck racing and more.

NHRA has announced its return to Firebird Motorsports Park for the 2024 season for the 39th annual NHRA Arizona Nationals on April 5 to 7, solidifying its continued history of NHRA drag racing at the track. Ticket renewals for the “Duel in the Desert” are available now to returning fans. The general public can purchase tickets on the NHRA website at NHRA.com beginning Dec. 11.

The Firebird Motorsports Park is excited to welcome events such as NHRA, Travis Pastrana’s Nitrocross Series, off road racing, sports car racing, car shows, drifting, team bracket racing, concerts, festivals and more. Radford Racing School will also host its Dodge Demon Drag Racing and other instructional-based racing classes at the facility.
