For all of you drag racing fans, 2014 brings with it some good news. The National Hod Rot Association has signed an agreement to bring the Mello Yello Drag Racing event to the Phoenix area starting this year. The event series will be held at the Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park, formerly known as the Firebird International Raceway and hopes to satisfy many fans’ need for speed and excitement. Drag racing is a thrilling event to watch, and even participate in when on a designated closed track, but it is a sport that is illegal on public streets.
