Bracket racers, consider 19 year old Gage Burch. He just won the largest payout ever in drag racing; $525,000. This was at 3:45 am this morning at US 131 in Martin, Michigan. He went 10 rounds and beat Johnny Ezell in the final. JBR was in his dragster. Gage was in a Ford Ranger running 6.50’s. Wow. He also runner upped in the $50k at the same event. There’s still hope for the little guy

His light in the final was double some of the losing packages I saw earlier. It's an amazing game we play! I saw a guy lose with a .006 pack!

At 19 he has a long future ahead of him!

Gage and Jeggie had a hell of a race in the Semis!
