The 2023 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series champions will be honored at the March event at the storied Gainesville Raceway facility.

“There’s already a lot of excitement and anticipation for next year’s Gatornationals and we are thrilled to begin the 2024 NHRA season in front of another tremendous crowd at Gainesville Raceway,” said NHRA Vice President of Track Management and Operations, Kasey Coler, in the press release. “It’s always a special weekend in Gainesville and the history and prestige of performing well at the Gatornationals truly makes it a can’t-miss event.”

In coming weeks, the schedule will be announced for the rest of the 2024 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series.

According to the release, “In 2023, Mike Salinas (Top Fuel), Matt Hagan (Funny Car), Troy Coughlin Jr. (Pro Stock) and Gaige Herrera (Pro Stock Motorcycle) all picked up victories to open the season. It marked the second straight Gainesville win for Hagan and Tony Stewart Racing, while Salinas, Coughlin and Herrera, the current and dominant points leader in Pro Stock Motorcycle, all won the historic race for the first time.”
