One of the sport’s most prestigious events, the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals 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.
This event, usually held in March but moved to September this year, is still one of the sport’s most revered, has entertained fans for decades with such notables as the first 260-mph Top Fuel and Funny Car runs in 1984 and the first 270-mph and 300-mph Top Fuel passes, in 1986 and 1992, respectively.
