Dadas Wins FuelTech $50,000 Friday at FTI SFG 350 Presented By JEGS

CEDAR FALLS, IA. (June, 5 2021): On Friday night, the SFG Promotions team crowned the first of the FTI SFG 350 winners. After ten grueling rounds of racing featuring some of the biggest names in Bracket Racing, Matt Dadas came out victorious, taking the $50,000 grand prize in Friday’s main-event sponsored by FuelTech.

It is safe to say that Dadas has a history of doing well at Cedar Falls Motorsports Park. At the FTI SFG 350 last year, he was the runner-up to Hunter Patton in Friday’s 50K and he won the Saturday 50K over Ricky Adkins.

In the semi-final round, Dadas, Johnny Ezell, and Mike Casteel were left to battle it out for the $50,000 grand prize.


In the semifinals, Dadas was awarded the bye to the final, leaving -.006 red off the starting line and running a 6.121 on a 6.12 dial in his single lap.

Ezell and Casteel went to battle on the other side of the ladder. Ezell left that starting line with a .013 light and ran a 4.82 on a 4.78 dial-in. Casteel let go .031 and ran a 5.827 on a 5.71 for the runner-up in the pair.


In the finals, Dadas was .020 on the tree and ran a 6.138 on his 6.12 dial, to take the win over Ezell.

Ezell put up a valiant runner-up effort with a .015 reaction time and ran a 4.770 on his 4.78 dial-in to break out.

To wrap up Friday night, the JEGS Thursday’s $25,000-to-win race was finished after all remaining contenders were given one time run. Results to come at a later time. 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.”
