Nationally recognized Footbrake competitors Jared Pennington

and Steve Stites announced today that they will be taking a step out from
behind the wheel and into the tower at Bristol Dragway next April 13-15.
The duo has teamed to promote the greatest Footbrake event in history at
the beautiful Bristol Facility, headlined by an unheard of $50,000-to-win
main event Saturday April 14.  In addition to the marquee Saturday
competition, the World Footbrake Challenge will be book-ended by a pair of
$10,000-to-win events, making the total purse for the event well over

“Steve and I are racers--and Footbrake racing is what we live, eat, and
breathe everyday,” said Pennington.  “We were at a race a while back, and
we were thinking; ‘Man, wouldn’t it be cool if we got to run for 50 grand?’
It’s never been done before, and we didn’t figure any of the regular tracks
or promoters would ever give it a shot...  So we decided to put it together
ourselves.  I have no doubt that come April we will have the best Footbrake
event ever--the only bummer for Steve and I is that as promoters we
obviously won’t be competing ourselves!”

The World Footbrake Challenge boasts a huge cash purse, all for a weekend
entry fee of just $800.  Plus, event promoters are offering a special
pre-entry discount: All pre-entries received before February 1, 2007 will
receive their run cards at the discounted price of $675.  What’s more?
Pre-enter before November 1, 2006 and get that same discounted $675 price,
plus a free weekend crew pass.  The event must have 125 pre-entries, or it
will be cancelled.

The Coalburg Racing Promotions duo of Pennington and Stites also assure
competitors that the cash purse will be augmented by a host of special
prizes.  “We wanted to go ahead and get the flyer out, to let everyone know
that this event is for real,” said Pennington.  “But we’re in the process
of securing sponsorship that will make the race even better for the
competitors.”  In addition to the over $100,000 guaranteed purse, the duo
plans to give away at least $15,000 in prizes for all types of rewards.
“We’re working to have a little something for everyone: the guys or girls
who win the big money won’t be the only people leaving with  smile on their
face.”  To keep up-to-date with the event’s growing prize pool, check in
periodically at the online home of the World Footbrake Challenge:
