The oldest major event in the Pacific Northwest, the NAPA Auto Parts Ignitor Opener presented by Peterson Chevrolet returns to Firebird Raceway on April 30/May 1. Firebird’s granddaddy event originated in 1971, a staple in Idaho’s greater Treasure Valley for 51 years.
The Ignitor will mark the second of two Firebird stops in the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Series. AA/Funny Cars will headline the Stinker Stores Nitro Knockout. The field will be led by reigning national champion Bobby Cottrell. Driving the Austin & O’Brien Northwest Hitter Camaro, the team went undefeated at Firebird last season winning both the Ignitor and Nightfire events.
In addition, the race will also boast the richest bracket tournament in Ignitor history. Gold Cup action will include two separate days of racing in Super Pro, Pro, Sled/Bike and Sportsman.
Funny Car qualifying is set for Noon, 3 pm and 5:30 pm on Saturday followed by Nitro finals at high noon on Sunday.
