WORLD SERIES OF BRACKET RACING IN DARLINGTON THIS WEEKEND
SFG Promotions, Inc. heads to Darlington Dragway for its 4th annual World Series of Bracket Racing event, with another incredible deal for bracket racers. The event will be held October 30th to November 2nd, directly following the Mickey Thompson Million Dollar race at Montgomery Raceway Park. Racers can come straight from Alabama to Darlington for a shot at big money without the big entry fees. This year, SFG’s World Series event will highlight a $200,000 main-event on Saturday for a $799 price tag on pre-entries. In typical SFG fashion, all payouts are guaranteed to a single winner.
“I love giving away deals and making it affordable for the racers,'' said SFG Promotions, Inc founder, Kyle Riley. “You can race for a billion dollars, but if you can’t afford it, you can’t afford it. We want to make it as affordable as possible to race for this kind of money.” Riley is truly all about doing right by racers and providing them the best experience possible. In that spirit, racers also have the chance to win a free entry to the inaugural SFG 1.1 Million Dollar race in 2020 for having the best Halloween costume in Darlington. The runner-up of this costume contest will get a free entry into both $100,000-to-win races before the main event at the 2020 SFG 1.1 Million Dollar Race in Michigan. Lastly, the best decorated pit area in Darlington will receive a free entry in the $200,000 World Series of Bracket Racing main event. Judging for both contests will be held on Saturday.
Further proof of Riley’s commitment to his racers’ experience is shown through his “Breakfast of Champions” on Friday morning of this event. This is a SFG initiative in which Cracker Barrel will come to the track to serve a full breakfast to every racer in attendance. Furthermore, Riley is also hosting a race on Wednesday for a brand new turnkey American Racecars dragster for no entry fee. If you’ve attended all three of the major SFG races this year, you’re eligible to compete in this race.
Unlike some SFG races, this event does not have an entry cap. Although you can pre-enter for a lower price, racers are still allowed to enter the main event at the gate for $875 (already discounted from the original $950). Furthermore, you don’t have to enter the main event to enter any of the $50,000 and $20,000 events earlier in the week. A breakdown of daily event winner payouts and entry fees are as follows:
-Thursday: $50,000 payout for a $599 entry fee (or, $499 if entered in the main event)
-Friday: $50,000 payout for a $599 entry fee (or, $499 if entered in the main event)
-Saturday: $200,000 payout for a $799 pre-entry fee, $875 at the gate, or $1400 to double enter
With a price and payout structure like this, it’s easy to see why SFG Promotions’, Kyle Riley preaches that his events offer “life changing money for cheap.”
SFG Promotions was started in July 2016, after Riley had a vision in his sleep to begin promoting big money bracket races, hence the name of the series, SFG: Sent From God. A mere seven months after Riley’s inspiration for SFG, he was hosting his first event featuring three $50,000 races at Piedmont Dragway. Pre-entries for that race sold out in just 4 days and well over 400 cars were in attendance. Today, SFG is a household name in the world of bracket racing.
