One of the sport’s most prestigious events and the traditional East Coast opener, will run now in late September after being postponed from March due to COVID-19. Gainesville Raceway has been host to record- and barrier-breaking passes in its five-decade run, including the first 300-mph Top Fuel pass in 1992 and the first 200-mph Pro Stock Motorcycle pass. An all-concrete racing surface debuted in 2019, further cementing the facility as one of the best in the country.
