Folk Crowned Monday JEGS $50K Warm-Up Winner at SFG Half Million

Nick Folk drives to victory in Monday’s $50K JEGS Warm-Up at the JEGS SFG Half Million at US 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, MI.

MARTIN, MI – The first official winner of the week was crowned at the JEGS SFG Half Million at US 131 Motorsports Park. The final round came down between Nick Folk and Kayleigh May, with Folk being crowned as the JEGS $50K Warm-Up winner.

Nick Folk drove his way through a tough field of door cars to find himself in the final round paired up with Kayleigh May. Both drivers were strong all day long, but Folk came out on top and picked up the first win of the weekend.

In the semi-final round, Folk was paired up with Todd Nickel on the door-car side while Kayleigh May ran her bye run on the dragster side.


In the battle of the door cars, Nick Folk defeated Todd Nickel. Folk was .001 and 7 above the dial-in to claim the win over Nickel, who missed the tree at the hit.

On the dragster side, Kayleigh May took the bye run after previously defeating Samantha Coughlin the round before in the first all-female dragster final round.


In the final round, Nick Folk left first with an .014 reaction time and ran 4 above his dial-in for the victory while May seemed to have problems down-track. Congratulations to both drivers on an excellent day of competition to start off a great weekend of racing!

Tomorrow kicks off the Fueltech $50K where the SFG Promotions team will run round 1 & the re-entry round on Tuesday, and finish the remainder of the race on Wednesday. Results will be posted as soon as they are available. Be sure to tune into MotorManiaTV.com to watch all the action LIVE!

ABOUT SFG PROMOTIONS, INC: 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 (SFG stands for Sent From God). Riley 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.”
