Final Call Promotions adds Liguori Drag Racing $5K Bike Shootout to second Annual Working Man’s 10 Grands, giving motorcycles the chance to win big.
The world of big money bracket racing continues to evolve with each new event, but typically caters to those operating on four wheels. The team at Final Call Promotions realized there was a demographic of racers who were often overlooked – drag bikes. Thanks to Liguori Drag Racing and Final Call Promotions, motorcycles will be able to battle on the big stage at the Working Man’s 10 Grands.
Switching Things Up
The second annual Working Man’s 10 Grands will look a bit different than last years event. To start with, an unexpected overbooking caused a venue change to Kil-Kare Raceway in Xenia, Ohio. Most importantly, the addition of a 100% payback motorcycle shootout increases the total payout by $8,000.
Thirty-two riders will compete for $5,000 to win, $2,000 for runner up, and $500 for each semi-finalist. Prior to the first time trial, racers will draw chips to secure their spot on the ladder. Then the ladder will be set for the duration of the shootout until one skilled racer claims the big check.
By adding the Liguori Drag Racing $5K Bike Shootout, motorcycle racers now have the opportunity to be center stage on MotorManiaTV. The shootout will be contested on Saturday, but bikes are encouraged to participate in the Twin 10 Grand main events as well.
It didn’t take long for thirty-two racers to sign up for this first time event and Final Call Promotions has high hopes to make it a yearly tradition. One of these accomplished drivers will make history as the first motorcycle winner at a Final Call Promotions event:
|Jesse Moyar||Jeremiah Moyer||Jeremy England||Steve Withem|

|Robert Mann||Scott Shepherd||Garreth Shepherd||Rod Bland|

Wise Words From Final Call Promotions
When asked about the incorporation of motorcycles, promoter Jake Hodge said, “It’s really the first time anyone has taken motorcycles into consideration at a big money bracket race. I grew up racing every weekend at Coles County Dragway against talented riders such as Eric Cooper, Wesley Wells, and world champion sportsman motorcycle racer Chad Isley. I know these guys out there are talented, they just need a chance to compete. So we decided to give them their own shootout, where they can show everyone what they can do.”
The Working Man’s 10 Grands includes the $5K Bike Shootout on Saturday, two $2,500 No Box races, as well as the Twin 10 Grands main event. An extra incentive for the No Box crowd is the High Roller option, where with an additional entry fee, if you win the No Box portion you move on into the next round of the $10K.
The schedule also includes two gamblers races, a pit vehicle race, racer appreciation dinner, burnout contest, and a guaranteed good time. This will be an event you do not want to miss! You can catch all the racing action from the Working Man’s 10 Grands on MotorManiaTV, August 28-30.
