The landmark 2019 50th Amalie Oil NHRA Gatornationals provided a wealth of great photography from the event, this a the final photo gallery with some cool shots from BANGShift.com contributor Sandra Alberti, who’ll be shooting a handful of NHRA Mello Mello events this season.
Top Fuel pilot Richie Crampton secured back-to-back Florida event victories at the 50th annual Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals at Gainesville Raceway.
Crampton locked in his first victory since this event last year on a holeshot win against Clay Millican with his pass of 3.769-seconds at 329.89 mph in his DHL / Kalitta Air dragster. He had not won a round this season, prior to securing his ninth career win.
Robert Hight (Funny Car), Bo Butner (Pro Stock) were also Pro winners in their respective categories at the third of 24 events on the 2019 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule.
Hight claimed the Funny Car title with his run of 3.867 at 331.61 in his Auto Club of Southern California Chevrolet Camaro SS to defeat Tim Wilkerson in the finals. After earning his third No. 1 qualifier of the season on Saturday, Hight secured his second Wally of the season and 47th of his career.
In Pro Stock, 2017 world champion Butner powered his Jim Butner’s Auto Chevrolet Camaro to victory with a run of 6.505 at 212.29 over Alex Laughlin. Butner was the runner-up at this facility last year and clinched his second win of the season.
