MARTIN, MI – Sean Serra made for a memorable Friday after defeating Cory Mong in the final round of the SFG Last Chance Race on Friday at the JEGS SFG Half Million. The original plan was to start the FTI Performance $500K race on Friday, but after a brief rain storm in the afternoon the SFG Team adjusted the schedule.
Serra found himself in the winners circle on Friday evening for $20,000 after defeating Cory Mong in the final round. Both drivers were identical up front, but Serra turned it into a win light after going a 4.811 on his 4.80 dial-in.
Garrett Griffith was the lone semi-finalist.
In the Ladies Shootout, Courtney Grisez drove her way to the winners circle after defeating Caraline McCarty in the final round. Grisez had a slight starting line advantage, .001 to .004, and lite up the scoreboard with a 4.156 on her 4.15 dial-in to turn it into the final winlight of the evening!
Madison Payne was the semi-finalist, wheeling Shawn Langdon’s 4.30 dragster.
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.”
