NHRA Gatornationals Drag Racing

NHRA Gatornationals Drag Racing at Gainesville Raceway – photos and video by Jerry Gentile

On Sunday March 20, 2016 I went to my first drag race – top fuel dragsters, runny cars, pro-stock and motorcycles – sweet!

Bad-ass tire smoking 10,000 horsepower monster machines that shake every atom in your body when they rumble down the strip.  There is nothing like being there versus watching it on TV.  Can’t wait to see another!

Brittany Force, of the famous Force family, won top fuel drag racing for the day.  Well that apple does not fall from the tree!

Here is a gallery of pictures that I took.  I’ve also uploaded a playlist of video clips to my youtube channel that you can see here.

This is a link to the NHRA site’s YouTube highlight reel – I wasn’t there on the day the top fuelie exploded but this video is something to watch!

Many thanks to Doug for suggesting it and driving the 2 plus hours each way!
