ADEL, Ga. (Nov. 4, 2020): Despite disruptive rain and mist delays, SFG Promotions successfully awarded over $100,000 in prizes last weekend to racers across the country at the SFG- FTI World Series of Bracket Racing at South Georgia Motorsports Park. With the completion of this event, just one more SFG event remains in Kyle Riley’s (founder of SFG) 2020 campaign to give bracket racers the highest payouts possible for minimal entry fees: the Hansen Global- SFG Christmas Bracket Bash at Bradenton Motorsports Park which offers over $122,500 in winner payouts.
In the first completed race of the week (the free $10,000-to-win race), Jesse Garcia beat Lester Adkins while leaving off of the bottom bulb. In the finals, Garcia made a dead-on 6.676 run on a 6.67 dial-in; Adkins also ran a dead-on 4.648 on a 4.64 dial-in beside him, but couldn’t quite get there after Garcia’s abundant starting line advantage.
The next event completed was the JEGS $50,000-to-win main event in which Manny Sousa took the victory in yet another No-Box entry.
He defeated Claude Debonis in the final round: Sousa was .013 on the tree and ran 6.322 on a 6.31 dial-in while Debonis was an identical .013 on the tree and ran 4.496 on his 4.48 dial-in to be .004 seconds behind at the finish line. Chad Six and Johnny Brannen were semifinalists in the main event, while Kendal Little, Gary Williams and Caroline McCarty ended their night as quarterfinalists.
Due to weather, the two $20,000-to-win events sponsored by Fueltech and Hansen Global were combined into one $40,000-to-win event. Howard Westbury took the combined $40,000 prize after Dangerous Don Hansen red light by -.017 seconds in the final round.
During his winners circle interview, Westbury thanked Kyle Riley and SFG Promotions for their support of bracket racers and urged more sponsors to get on board with the race series. Westbury made this plea just moments after giving Riley as smooch as jokingly promised earlier if he were to win. Darrel Pittman and Caleb Ellison were semifinalists in the event, while Kevin Rodden, Lester Adkins and Andrew Davis made quarterfinal appearances.
The final event contested for the week was the race for a $30,000 valued 32 ft. Vintage trailer, decked out with a dragster lift and more. Drew Smith took the win in that event after a .013 reaction time and dead on 5.048 run in the finals against Kevin Rodden who was .025 on the tree and also ran dead-on with a 6.056 on a 6.05 dial-in.
After his win, Smith thanked God, his family and his friends. Brian Barnes was the lone semifinalist in this event while Sean Serra and Gary Williams were the two quarterfinalists.
With just over a month away from the Hansen Global-SFG Christmas Bracket Bash, SFG team is actively taking pre entries for the event which will be capped at 200 dragsters and 200 door cars: 400 cars total.
