Gainesville Raceway Announces Construction Project Prior to 2019 Season

GAINESVILLE, Fla.—The National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and Gainesville Raceway officials have announced that a new concrete racing surface will be installed at the historic facility prior to the start of the 2019 season and the historic 50th Annual Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals. Construction kicked off on December 10 at the NHRA-owned facility with plans to have the track prepped well in advance of the Gatornationals. As part of the project, the old track surface will be removed and replaced with an all-concrete surface. New asphalt will also be installed beyond the finish line.
