50th Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals

Event Info

The Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals, held each March at Gainesville Raceway, is one of NHRA’s longest standing annual events going back to the days of muscle cars, rock ‘n’ roll and Coca-Cola. While the engines are faster and the tracks are safer these days, the true spirit of drag racing remains at Gainesville Raceway. The Gatornationals are a community staple providing entertainment and economy to the area.

NHRA Legends Ed “Ace” McCulloch, Shirley Muldowney, Darrell Gwynn, Don Garlits, Kenny Bernstein  and Joe Amato and many more will come together for one colossal blowout to celebrate the 50th annual Gatornationals. Never before will so many NHRA legends be gathered in one place!
