Gatornationals to once again feature All-Star Callout Race
Top Fuel competition to highlight weekend of action at Gainesville Raceway
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) -The NHRA is bringing back a popular feature that debuted at last year’s Gatornationals--The All-Star Callout Race will make its return to Gainesville Raceway, which will only add to what promises to be a thrilling week of racing at the 54th annual NHRA east coast opener March 10-12.
The All-Star Callout wil take place on Saturday March 11, consisting of the top eight drivers in the Top Fuel class. The drivers will choose their opening round opponent according to seeding. Head to head quarterfinal results will leave the field with four cars. From there, the driver with the fastest time will choose their semifinal opponent, and so on, until one driver emerges with a big pay day.
The No. 1 pick in the Callout Race this year goes to Brittany Force. She’ll get to determine her own path of least resistance, with Steve Torrence picking second (unless he is called out by Force).
The eight drivers are seeded as follows:
1. Brittany Force
2. Steve Torrence
3. Justin Ashley
4. Mike Salinas
5. Doug Kalitta
6. Josh Hart
7. Austin Prock
8. Clay Millican
(Note: Force will get the first selection for the opening round, followed by the next-highest seeded driver until matchups are set.
Action at the 54th annual Gatornationals begins with qualifying on Friday. Eliminations and finals take place on Sunday
