Gainesville Raceway opened in 1969 and held its first Gatornationals event in 1970. Long considered one of the fastest tracks on the NHRA circuit, it was from this legendary launch point that drivers clocked the first 260-, 270- and 300-mph Top Fuel runs.

Fun fact: During the 2000 Mac Tools NHRA Gatornationals, eight of 10 national records were set in the professional classes.
