War Eagle Speedway Update

E-mail Print PDF

What happened to the War Eagle Speedway in Elmore County

Have you been wondering when construction will start on the War Eagle Speedway in Elmore County Idaho? A project with such grand plans in our own backyard should be in the news more and more each day. But I haven't heard anything about this project since August 2007.

Ask and You Shall Receive
I decided to ask around at the Mountain Home City Hall and the Elmore County Court House to see if our officials had any news. The news I received was that the developers, Northwest Motorsports Inc had let their Conditional Use Permit (Cup) on the land off Simco Road expire. From what I understand, once the CUP expires the land reverts back to the original owners.

Other Information on Northwest Motorsports
I decided to do some checking with the State of Idaho and ended up on the Idaho.Gov “Business Entity Search” website. It looks like Pamula K. Dugger and Robert P. Walker are still a business entity under the name of either Northwest Motorsports Llc or Northwest Motorsport INC.

My Guess
My guess is the War Eagle Speedway in Elmore County plan has been put on extended hiatus or the speedway plan is dead. That is not to say that that we will not have a NASCAR Race track near Mountain Home. But I do think it will be a long, long time before we see any construction on Simco Road or the roar of 750 horsepower cars circling the asphalt in Elmore County.

Any News
If you have any additional information about the War Eagle Speedway, please contact me and I will post it right here so interested people can get the news.

War Eagle Speedway in Idaho

Keeping with the subject of this website "Life Off Interstate 84 in Idaho", I have a question. What happened to the War Eagle Speedway that was planned to be built off of Simco Road?

War Eagle Speedway and NASCAR in Idaho


The website for the War Eagle Speedway is pretty much inactive and I haven't seen any news in any Idaho newspaper.  I thought NASCAR was coming to our neighborhood.  This race track certainly would put Idaho and Mountain Home back in the news.  Anyone in Mountain Home or Boise have any information???

Bengoechea Building in Mountain Home

E-mail Print PDF

On April 12th, 2008 I decided to take some pictures in the downtown area of Mountain Home, Idaho. The Bengoechea Building attracted me almost immediately. This big building on North 2nd Street West was built in 1910 by Jose Bengoechea, a rich and successful entrepreneur who made his fortune in the sheep industry. Back in the 1920's and 1930's this building a one of the finest hotel in the western US.

While the Bengoechea building has undergone some changes during the last 98 years, hopefully the new owners will be able to follow through on their planned renovation of this grand old landmark. In 2007 Mirazim Shakoori bought the Bengoechea building with hopes of turning it back into a hotel and retail space.

Rumble and Road Car Show

August 3rd 2008 brought the Lions Club Rumble and Road Classic Car Show to Mountain Home, Idaho. This Car Show was held at Carl Miller Park on a beautiful day with light winds and warm temperatures. There were probably 50 plus cars on display and a few local businesses also had their car related products on display.

I was surprised to see a rock climbing wall set up at the back of the park. The kids seemed to really enjoy this feature.
