Firebird Raceway FUN!
Firebird was founded by the late Bill New and his wife Ellanor back in 1968. The expansive drag racing facility was built from scratch paralleling Highway 16 frontage in a direction from south to north. Hosting nearly fifty racing days each season, the NHRA member track traditionally begins each season in April and continues through the end of October. In total, literally tens of thousands of fans and racers attend events every season.
Operated today by the second generation of the New family, sometimes referred to as the New Crew, each of them are dedicated to following the same motto, “We strive to provide a clean, first-class venue for the racers and spectators to enjoy our sport. Often called the Firebird experience, we will go out of our way to create affordable and action-packed fun for your entire family.
Furthermore, we jump start each race season with the Boise Roadster Show staged at Expo Idaho. As Idaho’s largest motorsport’s event, the show is a three-day and night ISCA-sanctioned rod, custom and truck show that traditionally falls on the second weekend of March.
