The classic duel in the desert, which will be held Feb. 21-23 at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park near Phoenix (formerly Firebird Int'l Raceway), is the second of 24 events in the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.

The tradition-rich facility, under new management in 2014, has a reputation among NHRA race teams and fans for its record-setting potential and for showcasing very close race finishes.

Tony Schumacher (Top Fuel), Ron Capps (Funny Car), and Erica Enders-Stevens (Pro Stock) are the defending winners of the event, which will be televised on ESPN2HD.

Many other stars of the sport, including 16-time Funny Car world champion John Force, Top Fuel world champ Shawn Langdon, Antron Brown, Courtney Force, Matt Hagan, Pro Stock world champion Jeg Coughlin Jr., and two-time Funny Car champ Cruz Pedregon are expected to compete at the event.
