With the proliferation on high dollar bracket racing today, most of the events are centered around one class of racer, those of the Super Pro configuration where electronics play an important role. However, Jared Pennington and Steve Stites haven’t forgotten their roots. Together, they formed Coalburg Racing Promotions 13 years ago and have promoted both the BTE World Footbrake Challenge and the BTE Southern Footbrake Challenge held in Bristol, Tennessee and Holly Springs, Mississippi respectively. Both events highlight the footbrake crowd, those who survive by leaving off the bottom bulb of the ‘Tree by swapping feet, releasing the brake pedal and stepping on the gas.
“We’re both old footbrake racers and friends, having always felt like those racers deserve to run for big money just like the Super Pro cars,” said Pennington.
