Wild Horse Pass will head into the new year with a new name and logo aftee being rebranded Firebird Motorsports Park. 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.
“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 Buckman.
The facility includes three road course circuits, acres of pavement for autocross and skidpad use, a quarter-mile 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.
The venue’s future had been uncertain after a new freeway overpass was slated to be built through the middle of where the facility st ands, however an outpouring of support from the racing industry and race fans last year prompted the Wild Horse Pass Development Authority to reroute the road and keep the circuit open.
