Wild Horse Motorsports Park is a quarter-mile dragstrip and road course in Chandler, Arizona.

History

The facility opened as Firebird International Raceway in 1983 and hosts the NHRA's Arizona Nationals. It held one IMSA GT race, in 1987. Due to its warm climate, it is a popular winter testing spot for NHRA and IndyCar teams. After 30 years of hosting an array of auto enthusiast events like the NHRA Arizona Nationals, the Mello Yello Drag Racing, the Checkered Flag Run and Monster Truck Shows, the lease between former track president Charlie Allen and the Gila River Indian Community expired and was not renewed.[1]

A new management company, Copper Train Development Partners, LLC, has signed a contract to operate the facility, which has been renamed Wild Horse Motorsports Park.[2]
