(Oct. 31, 2019) SFG Promotions, Inc. proved their appreciation to their racers in a big way by giving away a brand new American Racecars Dragster, valued at $65,000 in a no-entry race. About 90 racers who attended every SFG Promotions event in 2019 were exclusively entered into the race for the dragster, and in the end, Will Holloman came out victorious. This special race was held at Darlington Dragway as part of SFG’s World Series of Bracket Racing event, which is highlighting a guaranteed $200,000 payout to a single winner on Saturday.
“This was an actual giveway, just out of the kindness of their heart. It’s hard to find that,” says Holloman, just moments after his big win. In his post-race interview on MotorMania TV, Holloman went on to thank Chris Reynolds, Chris Wilson, Marco Abbruzi, American Racecars, Scott and Nicole Lemen, Drag Race Solutions, and Collector Tethers.
After Holloman’s win, Kyle Riley of SFG also appeared on MotorMania TV as he thanked each of the racers who earned an entry into the event, and explained, “they ask why race SFG, and this is the reason why.” Riley then went on to thank each of the companies that made the awarded giveway dragster possible by: FTI Performance, FuelTech USA Tech, Wilson Race Engines, LLC, JEGS Performance, Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels, BRODIX Cylinder Heads, Lindsay Racing Products,Riggeals Performance Fiberglass, Todds Extreme Paint, K&R Performance, Penske Racing Shocks, and May Race Carbs.
