FuelTech $50,000-to-win race, Matt Dadas won Saturday’s JEGS
$50,000-to-win race, and “Nasty” Nick Hastings came out
victorious in Thursday’s rain-delayed $25,000-to-win race
sponsored by JEGS.
“It was an amazing weekend at Cedar Falls Motorsports Park,”
said CEO of SFG Promotions, Inc., Kyle Riley while reflecting
on the weekend. “We had awesome performances put on by Dadas,
Patton, Hastings, and Adkins.”
FuelTech $50,000-To-Win Race:
Semifinals: In the semifinals of the first of two
50,000-to-win races, Patton put up a near perfect run on a
competition bye-run, leaving .000 off the starting line and
running 4.479 on his 4.48 dial.
Dustin Long and Dadas paired up to decide who'd run Patton in
the final. Dadas came out victorious after posting a .016
reaction-time and running 6.361 on his 6.36 dial-in. Long was
just .004 seconds behind after a .015 light and 5.186 run on a
Finals: In the finals, a rerun of the 2019 Fall Fling
main-event final was set with Patton and Dadas going to war
for another big check. Patton was .006 on the tree and ran
4.479 (exactly the same as his last run) on his 4.47 dial-in
to win the final by just .002 seconds.
Dadas put up a strong runner-up effort with a .007 reaction
time before running .018 above his 6.35 dial-in.
JEGS $50,000-To-Win Race
Semifinals: In the semifinals of the second $50,000 race at
the FTI 350, Dadas defeated a red lighting Gary Williams which
set the stage for a final between Dadas and Ricky “Bull Dog”
Adkins who was on the bye.
Finals: Dadas sealed the deal in his second final of the
weekend by putting up a .001 light before running well over
his dial-in after Adkins got loose around 330 feet.
$25,000-To-Win Race Sponsored By JEGS
A foot-braking Hastings grabbed the last win of the weekend
for $25,000 after taking out Friday’s $50,000 winner, Patton
in the final. Hastings was .018 on the tree alongside Patton’s
slightly better .016 light, but a 6.112 run on a 6.10 dial-in
was enough to put Patton’s .056 total package on the trailer.
The SFG crew will head to US 131 Motorsports Park next to host
the highest paying drag race in the history of the sport: the
JEGS-SFG 1.1 Million, June 29th- July 5th.
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.”
