NHRA 2025 Season to Again Kick Off at GainesvilleNHRA/National Dragster

The NHRA has given a super-quick sneak peek at the kick off to its 2025 NHRA Mission Foods Drag Racing Series schedule, but president Glen Cromwell says the rest of the calendar won’t be released for a few weeks.

For the third straight year, the Gatornationals will kick off the season at historic Gainesville Raceway. The March 6-9 event will be the 56th at the Central Florida dragstrip as the NHRA opens its 74th year of competition.

“We’ve had great success starting our season at Gainesville Raceway the last two years, and it’s something our race teams and partners have enjoyed, as well,” Cromwell said. “Starting in Gainesville gives us a lot of momentum to open the year, and we’re looking forward to announcing the full 2025 schedule in the coming weeks.”

Tickets for the Gatornationals will go on sale Aug. 19.
