Cory Gulitti drove to the winners circle in the Hansen Global $50K event on Thursday evening at the JEGS SFG Half Million at US 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, MI.
MARTIN, MI – Cory Gulitti was crowned the Hansen Global $50,000 winner at the JEGS SFG Half Million at US 131 Motorsports Park. The final round came down between Cory Gulitti and NHRA World Champion Johnny Labbous Jr., with Gulitti being crowned as the Fueltech $50K race winner.
Gulitti drove his way through a tough field of dragsters to find himself in the final round paired up with John Labbous Jr. Both drivers were strong all day long, but Gulitti came out on top and picked up the win.
In the semi-final round, Gulitti was paired up with Roman Cosner on the dragster side while Labbous Jr was paired up with Dink Holmes on the door-car side.
In the battle of the dragsters, Gulitti defeated Roman Cosner. Gulitti had the slight starting line advantage over Cosner and turned it into a win light.
On the door-car side, Labbous defeated Dink Holmes. Holmes had the starting line advantage over Labbous but took too much stripe to hand the win over to Labbous who ran a 5.169 at 137 mph.
In the final round, Gulitti had the starting line advantage over Labbous, .023 to .025, and ran a 4.480 on his 4.48 dial-in to pick up the final win light of the evening.
Congratulations to both drivers on an excellent day of competition!

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.”
