Brannen Crowned Friday $25K Winner at the SFG FuelTech Season Kick-Off
The first official winner of the 2022 SFG racing season was crowned on Friday at the FuelTech SFG Season Kick-Off presented by FTI Performance at Bradenton Motorsports Park.
John Brannen otherwise known as “John Yacht” drove his way through a tough field of dragsters and found himself squared up with Caraline McCarty in her Rambler Wagon in the final round. Both drivers were strong in the final, but Brannen came out on top, picking up the first victory of the weekend.
In the semi-final round, Brannen was joined by Stephen “Champ” McCrory, McCarty and Matt Brewer.
First up was the battle of the door cars: Brewer & McCarty. McCarty was .005 and ran dead-on two claiming the win over Brewer.
McCrory and Brannen went up against each other on the other side of the ladder. McCrory left the starting line with an unfortunate -.001 red giving the automatic win to Brannen.
In the finals, Brannen was .002 on the tree and ran dead-on three to take the win over McCarty. Congratulations to both drivers on an excellent day of competition.
Boose Claims Sunday Combined $50K Win at the SFG FuelTech Season Kick-Off
With the weather for the Saturday $25K looking unpleasant, the SFG team made the decision to cancel all racing activities for Saturday and combine both remaining $25K’s into one $50K that was contested on Sunday.
With the now-doubled payout on the line, racers went to battle in the nine round race which capped off the SFG FuelTech Season Kick-Off presented by FTI Performance.
As the smoke settled into the evening only one competitor remained, which was Brian Boose who claimed the combined $50,000 prize and a Riley trophy.
In the semi-final round, Boose was joined by three other racers: Sean Serra, Travis Logan and Carl Baker.
The two remaining door car drivers, Logan and Baker paired up in the semi-final round. Logan left first posting a .005 reaction time which is all he needed to do because Baker was -.005 red, punching Logan’s ticket to the final.
On the dragster side, Serra & Boose squared up to see who would join Logan in the $50K final round. Unfortunately for Serra, he left -.003 red to give the automatic win to Boose.
In the finals, Logan let go late giving the starting line advantage over to Boose who was .009 and ran two-above nine to pick up the final win light of the weekend and go home $50,000 richer.
