Matt Hagan picked up the victory at the final Bandimere Speedway NHRA national event. Clay Millican, Troy Coughlin Jr., and Gaige Herrera also won on Sunday in front of a sellout crowd at the 43rd Dodge Power Brokers NHRA Mile-High Nationals.
Gaige Herrera scored his first career win in Pro Stock Motorcycle and was joined in the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals winner’s circle by Mike Salinas, Matt Hagan, and Troy Coughlin Jr. as the 2023 NHRA Camping World Drag racing season kicked off at Gainesville Raceway.
It isn’t an exaggeration to say that Saturday’s crowd at the 54th annual Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals was one of the largest ever to see a drag race in person and the stars of the Camping World NHRA Drag Racing Series responded with a phenomenal show.
After two thrilling and action-packed days of qualifying, the fields are set for the season-ending Auto Club NHRA Finals where champions will be crowned in Top Fuel, Funny Car, and Pro Stock Motorcycle.
