Steve Sisko Claims Biggest Payday in Drag Racing History

Steve Sisko has been crowned the JEGS-SFG $1.1 million champion at U.S. 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, MI over the weekend. He also went on to win Sunday’s $100,000 event.

He defeated competitor Bill Swain during the final round to collect the biggest payday in drag racing history.

“I knew that I could do it… I’ve done it on other stages,” Sisko said in the winners’ circle, according to Drag Illustrated. “The car was [subpar] all weekend, so I just held… and took .00 every time. I think the rear broke [as I was coming back from the finish line]. This is the biggest… race you can have, and I just won the biggest… race there is.”

Sisko also went on to win Sunday’s $100,000 event the following night. Swain finished in the runner-up position with two entries in the race.

The SFG Million presented by SFG Promotions, which ran from June 29 through July 5, featured big payouts for bracket racers, including $100,000-to-win races and an all-female shootout run.
