Eddie Krawiec, a four-time winner at the event, as well as his Screamin’ Eagle Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson teammate Andrew Hines will hit the strip at the Gator Nationals this weekend.

Early-season momentum and a chance at glory at one of the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series’ legendary races is on the line at the 48th annual Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals, March 16-19 at Gainesville Raceway.

The NHRA’s traditional East Coast opener is the third race in the 2017 season, and the event never fails to disappoint as the world’s best drag racers power their 10,000-horsepower, nitro-burning machines down one of the fastest tracks on the circuit. The Pro Stock Motorcycle class makes its 2017 debut at the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals, the first of 16 races delivering thrilling action in the two-wheeled class.

Mello Yello Drag Racing Series qualifying will feature two rounds at 12:45 and 4:15 p.m. on Friday, March 17 and the final two rounds of qualifying on Saturday, March 18 at 12:00 and 2:30 p.m. Final eliminations are scheduled for 11 a.m. on Sunday, March 19.
