Holloman Takes Friday’s $25,000 Prize at JEGS-SFG Bracket Bash

COLUMBUS, OH. (Sept. 5, 2020): A familiar face to SFG, Will Holloman took the $25,000-to-win victory during FuelTech Friday at the JEGS-SFG Labor-Day Bracket Bash last night at National Trail Raceway against local racer Larry Houck. Holloman was joined in Columbus, Ohio by hundreds of other racers across the country who are taking a stab at over $100,000 in payouts this week ahead of the JEGS-500, which will payout $500,000 to a single winner September 15-20 at South Georgia Motorsports Park

After his win, Holloman made it a point to thank those that help him get to the winners circle including Travis at American Racecars, Marco Abruzzi and his family, Switzer Dynamics, DragRaceResults.com, Drag Race Solutions, and SFG for putting on the event.

The journey to the $25,000 JEGS-SFG payday was tough as usual. In the quarterfinals, six of the fiercest competitors in the land remained following seven rounds of racing.

On the door car side of the spectacle, Marco Abruzzi was defeated by Larry Haulk in the quarterfinals by a mere .005 seconds. Bill Webb went on to take the timely bye-run to the semifinals while irreparably damaging his fast 4.80 door car in the process.

On the dragster side of the ladder, Ryan Pinkleman redlit against Tyler Bohannon, and Holloman took the bye-run to the semifinals.

With the door car and dragster finals set, Haulk defeated Webb (who borrowed a friends car to make the round) by posting a solid .014 reaction time and running .01 seconds above his dial-in. Moments later, Holloman defeated Bohannon by .011 seconds, laying down a run just .006 seconds above his 4.60 dial-in.

In the final round for $25,000, Holloman threw down another dead-on run with a 4.605 lap on his 4.60 dial-in to defeat Houck, who was better on the tree but broke out for the runner-up.

After all was said and done, Houck thanked his parents while being interviewed and explained that the truck he was driving was something homebuilt in his family’s garage- showing that more than high dollar dragsters can have success at SFG events.

With race one of the weekend complete, race two sponsored by FTI Performance for $50,000 is currently underway with a champion expected to be crowned in the coming hours.

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.”
