Byron Dragway, widely known as “The Birthplace of Big Money Bracket Racing” hosted its Firecracker Bracket Nationals for the 20th consecutive year on July 5-7, 2019.
“As the birthplace of big money bracket racing, we take great pride in continuing this tradition with the Firecracker Bracket Nationals,” said Byron Dragway general manager Randy Simpson. “While big payouts are commonplace at Byron Dragway as part of our Big Bucks Bracket Bash Series, the Firecracker Bracket Nationals has certainly set itself apart as one of the majors.”

For 13 years, the team of Jared Pennington and Steve Stites through their Coalburg Racing Promotions company have provided Footbrake racers; those who leave off the bottom bulb by essentially swapping feet; with some of the best high dollar footbrake races in the country. By this time next year, all the footbrake crowd will be speaking about is the largest purse in the history of that class with the official announcement today of a $100,000-to-win race specifically for the footbrake crowd, with the entire purse 100-percent guaranteed regardless of car count. As is custom with any Coalburg Racing Promotions event, a win light in the second round earns some round money.

The connotation has been used before but we have come to Day Last of the 13th BTE World Footbrake Challenge at Bristol Dragway. Yesterday’s Lopez Motorsports $10K vent had its – excuse the pun – challenges as Mother Nature set the day back several hours forcing eliminations to be halted at the curfew of 1:00 this morning with 22 racers still left in competition.
Today’s plan was to complete round six and then go into first round of eliminations for Sunday’s race with the remaining Saturday rounds worked in until a Saturday winner is named.
