SFG World Series of Bracket Racing: Recap
DARLINGTON, SC. (Nov. 4, 2019): Last week, SFG Promotions, Inc. hosted bracket racers from across the country at their 4th annual World Series of Bracket Racing event at Darlington Dragway.
The week was set to start last Wednesday with a $20,000-to-win warm up race. Unfortunately, rain caused a cancellation of Wednesday’s race, and clashed with SFG’s plans throughout the week.
Despite lingering rain, and other delays such as glass being shattered on the racetrack, a resilient SFG staff successfully gave away a brand new American Racecars Dragster and well over $300,000 to racers over four events throughout the week.
Will Holloman (American Racecars Dragster Shootout), Mikey Bloomfield (FTI $200,000-to-win main event), and Randy Scheuer Jr. (Fuel Tech $50,000-to-win race) left the event as winners.
American Racecars Dragster Shootout:
On Thursday, SFG Promotions, Inc. gave 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, Holloman came out victorious.
“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 the final, Holloman left the starting line with a .013 light before running .013 above his dial-in to take the win over Scotty Richardson by .002 seconds.
FTI $200,000-To-Win Main Event
After nine rounds of hard fought racing, Bloomfield won the $200,000 main-event after Chris Dixon redlit by .007 seconds in the final-round.
“It’s great to get out of the slump,” says Bloomfield in the winners circle.
In the final round, Dixon in the door car was .007 red giving the win to Bloomfield, who was ready with a .001 reaction time.
Fuel-Tech $50,000-To-Win Races
After having to cancel the first Fuel Tech $50,000-to-win race, the SFG World Series of Bracket Racing came to a successful close with it’s second Fuel Tech $50,000-to-win race on Sunday. Scheuer Jr. found himself in the winner’s circle with the $50,000 check, after defeating Eric Thomas in the final.
“I’ve had a rough year, but it ended on a high note just like I wanted it to,” said Scheuer Jr. in his winners circle interview.
In the final, Scheuer Jr. posted .025 light and went 4.694 on a 4.68 dial to take the win over Thomas.

ABOUT SFG PROMOTIONS, INC
“What is SFG and where did it come from?” you ask. SFG is the brainchild of racer and promoter Kyle Riley. “I had a vision to offer racers the chance to race for big money that the average racer could not afford, but I give God all the credit for the idea because it was sent from God,” states Riley. Riley also adds, “Until SFG came about your average racer couldn’t afford the chance to run for 50k or 100k because it was out of their price range.
I wanted your everyday bracket racer to know what it feels like to stage up for that kind of money. A lot of people think I’m crazy, but I’ve always felt it’s better to give than to receive. The racers have really supported SFG in its first years, so I want to show them that I really appreciate their support so I raised the payouts and lowered the entry fees. Everyone will see the better SFG does the more the racer will benefit from our success.”
