Patton Wins FuelTech $50,000 Race at FTI 350 Presented By
CEDAR FALLS, IA. (May 30, 2020): Following a rainy start to
the FTI 350 presented by JEGS at Cedar Falls Motorsports Park,
the first of three winners was crowned. After ten grueling
rounds of racing featuring some of the biggest names in
Bracket Racing, Hunter Patton came out victorious, taking the
$50,000 grand prize in Friday’s main-event sponsored by
The path to victory was far from easy for Patton, with fierce
competitors still in the hunt for the $50,000 check by the
With five cars left in round eight, Matt Dadas sat on the bye,
while two dragsters and two door-cars were left to duke it out
to decide the final three.
Nick Hastings took on Dustin Long on the door-car side of
things with Long dodging a bullet after Hastings left the
starting line too soon to be -.005 red. Long crept by with a
less than stellar .046 reaction-time and 5.182 lap on his 5.19
Dennis Lund and eventual winner, Hunter Patton battled to be
the last dragster standing in an excellent race decided by
only .0014 seconds. Lund was .007 on the tree and ran 4.353 on
his 4.34 dial-in to be narrowly outran by Patton’s .003 light
and 4.496 lap on a 4.48 dial-in.
In the semifinals, Patton flexed his muscles on a bye-run to
the final with a near perfect run, leaving .000 off the
starting line and running 4.479 on a 4.48 dial.
Long and Dadas went to battle on the other side of the ladder
in another excellent race. Dadas left that starting line with
a .016 light and ran just .001 above his 6.36 dial-in. Long
was .004 seconds behind after his .015 light and 5.186 run on
a 5.18 dial.
In the finals, a rerun of the 2019 Fall Fling main-event was
set with Patton and Dadas going head to head. Patton was .006
on the tree and ran 4.479 again on his 4.47 dial, to take the
win by just .002 seconds.
Dadas put up a valiant runner-up effort with a .007 reaction
time and a run just .018 above his 6.35 dial-in.
To wrap up Friday night, round four of Thursday’s
$25,000-to-win race presented by JEGS was contested. The SFG
team will work to complete the finals of that race and the
second $50,000-to-win race sponsored by Allstar Performance on
Saturday, May 30th. Be sure to catch all of the action live at
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.”
