After the Firebird International Raceway went out of business in 2013, a new management group was formed to reopen the facility. In June 2013, it was rebranded as Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park.
NHRA's national drag racing series has competed here since the track was built in 1983. An agreement was made with the new management group to keep the annual event alive.
In addition to the drag strip, Wild Horse Pass also features a lake for drag boat racing, a road racing course, two additional test tracks, and a track for the Bondurant driving school. The land is owned by the Gila River Indian Community.
