The next stop for drag racing at Firebird will take place Saturday, July 26th for an event that has affectionately become known as the Pre-Nightfire Warm Up. The night race will offer racing in Super Pro, Pro, Sled/Bike, Sportsman, Junior Dragster, Nostalgia, Outlaw Street, Street Truck, Street Bike and Super Shifter.

Gates will open 1 pm followed by eliminations at 6 pm. The Pre-Nightfire will mark the final race for round points before both the Pepsi Nightifre Nationals (which offers premium points each day) and the Summit E.T. Finals over Labor Day weekend.

In addition, this event will be the final stop in the Division 6 Land of the Leaders Challenge.


We’re counting down to easily the single most anticipated racing weekend of the year as the 43rd edition of the Pepsi Nightfire Nationals returns on August 7th-10th.

The race will mark a key stop in the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Series for both AA/Funny Car and AA/Fuel Dragster, along with the West Coast Outlaw Pro Modified Association. Additionally, we will showcase Jets nightly, along with "the Outlaw" Ed Jones and his wheelstanding Stagecoach.

All pre-entry brochures were mailed out this past week for the richest weekend of sportsman racing in the Northwest as the famed Bracketeer Series returns with a whopping $80,000 in guaranteed cash on the line. The event is open to all racers, including categories for: Bracketeer (Super Pro), Pro, Sled/Bike and Heavy, along with the go-fast class known as Top Fire presented by Lucas Oil.

This year's Nightfire will pay a guaranteeed winner's prize of $5,000 to win on Thursday, Friday, and Sunday in Bracketeer (Super Pro), along with the single richest day of the season at Firebird, a $7,500 payday to the champion of Saturday's Bracketeer main event.

In Pro eliminator, the payouts will include $2,000 to win of Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and $3000 to the champion on Saturday.

If by chance you didn’t receive a pre-entry, please drop us an email at and we will email you an electronic version of the application. Or you can find a .pdf file of the official entry under the Facebook logo on the front left-hand side of this page.


Start making your plans to join the caravan to Woodburn for the Summit E.T. Finals, which will take place over Labor Day weekend (August 29-31, 2014) at Woodburn Dragstrip. A total of 58 racers will qualify for this year's team race. All of us are really looking forward to the trip to Woodburn, the host site of Team Firebird’s sixth Northwest Track Team Championship (back in 2009).

Our team headquarters has been locked in at the Holiday Inn in Wilsonville, a beautiful location that we have thoroughly enjoyed multiple times for the Team Finals when it has been held at Woodburn Dragstrip. It's conveniently located right off the freeway, which takes you right to the raceway on I-5. They have a full restaurant, fitness center, heated indoor pool `n spa and very nice rooms (and complimentary internet). When we're not at the raceway, it'll be a fun place to gather nightly and each morning unless you plan to stay on-site at the track. They also have a nightclub/bar with big screens for more evening enjoyment (and our official headquarters for the big BSU v. Ole Miss game on Thurs. night, 8/28).

To secure a room, you can call them direct at 503 682-2211. To secure the $99 rate, you will need to tell them: Firebird Raceway – NHRA ET Finals at Woodburn. We recommend calling early to secure a room, but they will hold rate until 8/18/14 or when room availability is exhausted (they told us it’s a busy time of year for their property).
