The tradition of big money bracket racing at Byron Dragway continued last weekend with the running of the 23rd Firecracker Bracket Nationals.
Held over three days, with $100,000 to win on Saturday, and $30,000 each on Friday and Sunday, the Firecrackers are exclusive due to the limited number of entry slots available. And that exclusivity means some of the best bracket racers locally and from across the country show up to pocket the Big Bucks and Byron Dragway’s richest race weekend.

You can't go through a 35-plus year career in drag racing without having a few odd moments.
For five-time IHRA champion Gene Fulton there was none odder and more defining than the day he first laid eyes on a 1964 Chevy II parked on a used car lot in Abilene, Texas.
This car was no looker. In fact, it was the kind of car one might choose as a last resort, with the exception of Fulton.
Fulton saw something no one else envisioned. The end result was a race car which would go down in southeastern drag racing folklore as simply “that wagon Fulton used to have; that few could beat.”
