Will Holloman won a free American Race Cars dragster Thursday night at the SFG Promotions World Series of Bracket Racing.

HOUSTON, Tx. (Oct. 31, 2019): Tonight, SFG Promotions, Inc. proved their appreciation to their racers in a big way by giving 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, Will Holloman came out victorious. This special race was held at Darlington Dragway as part of SFG’s World Series of Bracket Racing event, which is highlighting a guaranteed $200,000 payout to a single winner on Saturday.

“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.”
