CURFEW WINS THE BATTLE IN FRIDAY BTW WORLD FOOTBRAKE CHALLENGE COMPETITION

 

Like a lot of big races all over the country this weekend, racers have flocked to the track at each event in order to suit their competitive juices and the BTE World Footbrake Challenge at Bristol Dragway is no different.

For the 14th year in a row, hundreds of the best footbrakers in the country were here “swapping feet,” leaving off the bottom bulb with no trans brakes or electronic delay devices; doing it the way drag racing began.

Today’s schedule involved a Test & Tune session followed by the first of two scheduled WFC Gambler’s Races. This year co-promoters Jared Pennington and Steve Stites chose to increase the payout of the Gambler’s Races from $3,000 to $5,000 for the winner, and with it brought out a record number of entries for the whole event. While double entries are permitted at the three main WFC races this weekend, the Gambler’s Races are single entry, no buybacks, run shootout style, two go down and one comes back.

DICKEN POCKETS $100K IN SFG MILLION WEDNESDAY ACTION

 

Day three of the JEGS-SFG 1.1 Million at US 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, MI proved to be extremely productive for SFG Promotions, Inc. and highly lucrative for its racers. Eliminations for three events were contested on Wednesday preceding the $1.1M main-event with winners being crowned in two of those events.

Lane Dicken took the win in the FTI $100,000-to-win event and Madisyn McCormick was victorious in the FuelTech Ladies Shootout.

WADE WHITE POCKETS 100K IN BYRON FIRECRACKER NATIONALS

 

As with much of the motorsports world, Byron Dragway's Firecracker Bracket Nationals was in a state of flux. Then Illinois moved into Phase 4 of its pandemic response, which allows competitive racing with limited spectator attendance. As a result the 21st edition the longest running, and one of the richest bracket races in the U.S. came off as scheduled on June 26-28

Typically a three day event, with $100,000 to win on Saturday, and $30,000 each on Friday and Sunday, Mother Nature altered those plans slightly by raining out Friday's competition before it could start. As a result, Saturday was run as planned, and Friday's prize money would be rolled into Sunday's event.

Limited to 128 Dragsters and 128 Door Cars, the entry list included several touring professionals and hungry regional racers. With one round of bye backs, this would mean nine rounds of racing on Saturday. With post-storm weather conditions already bright, hot and humid when time trials got underway. This would be a challenging day for human and machine.  "This race is a marathon, not a sprint." cautioned Byron Dragway General Manager Randy Simpson. "Pace yourselves accordingly!"

SFG PROMOTIONS OPENS DIALOGUE ON ILLEGAL DEVICES IN BIG MONEY BRACKET RACING

 

SFG Promotions is getting out ahead of the talk focusing on illegal devices used as a performance advantage in big bucks bracket racing.

“It is no secret that in the last four4 years, thanks in large part to the innovation of SFG, payouts at big money bracket races have skyrocketed,” SFG said in a prepared statement. Let there be no confusion; we are proud of this and proud to have paid out over $7,000,000 to thousands of racers in our short history.

“Unfortunately, with these record-breaking payouts comes an increased reason for racers to utilize illegal devices to gain a competitive advantage.
