Sorry everyone they gave me the wrong link and I was tied up all day at the event. Links fixed now should be good to go moving forward.

Wednesday's 50k was run through 2nd round before being halted due to cold weather. It will resume Thursday morning and run to completion.

Thursday's 50k will be combined with Saturday's 50k and start as a 100k Thursday evening as soon as the 1st 50k is completed. It will have a buy back and will be finished on Saturday.

Friday will remain dedicated to the MILLION itself.

SL... out

Looked like the door cars were really struggling with the cold track. Lots of .05 or more over runs and more than a few cars turned hard one way or the other.

The 27th Annual Mickey Thompson Performance Tires and Wheels kicked off at Capital City Motorsports Park with Nick Folk of Durand, IL being crowned Wednesday’s Summit Racing Equipment Triple 50’s winner as he defeated Brad Clark in a “no-split” final round. That’s right. No Split. Folk cashed in on the entire $50,000 as there was zero negotiations with the structure of the purse, adding pressure to both drivers at the start of the weekend.

613 entries completed the Volcano Manifolds/AutoMeter Products, Inc first round of Wednesday’s Summit Racing Equipment Triple 50’s.

A substantial advantage on the starting line helped Folk secure the Summit Racing Equipment 50K victory over Clarke.

Folk said “when you’re getting in the car, it’s a little different knowing there is no split for the $50,000 but we’ve all done this so many times. The situation was no different and there was no pressure once I pre-staged the car.”

“I was my normal .020 on the tree like I have been lately, but the no-split doesn’t affect 90% of us racers when we put our helmet on.”

“I have one bad hotrod. I’ve never dialed this close for that many rounds in my life. I want to thank everyone that helps us out with these cars. This is Car number one of the new Folk Race Cars built dragsters.”

Josh Jarrell was the lone semi-finalist, turning it red against Brad Clarke in the semi-finals.

In Tuesday’s Race to the Million Warm-Up Race, Derek Fuller of Prattville, AL defeated Joe Hoskins in a four-thousandths margin of victory race as both drivers went dead on the dial with the advantage being at the Christmas Tree. Fuller’s .022 reaction time was enough to park his 1968 Camaro into the winner’s circle.

Fuller said “I want to thank my friends, family, Fuel Tech, and my dad. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be able to race. Also, thanks to Ben Willis and Capital City Motorsports Park for giving us a great place to race.”

Due to cold mornings and evenings, Folk Promotions has elected to combine Thursday and Saturday’s Summit Racing Equipment Triple 50’s into one $100k to win race starting on Thursday and finishing on Saturday. The Million Dollar Race main event, as always, will stand alone on Friday as we crown our 27th Annual Million Dollar Race Champion.

Be sure to watch the remaining events on the Lucas Oil & Vintage Trailer Sales MotorManiaTV Live Feed. Racers on site can watch the event live from the staging lanes on the Glynn Smith Chevrolet Jumbotron.

Also, don’t forget to enter the VIP Club grand prize drawing for the 2022 GMC Sierra Truck for $39 and the American Race Cars Dragster Chassis Raffle. You do not have to be present to win any VIP prizes nor the dragster raffle. Anyone can enter at www.theMillionOnline.com and select "VIP Club.”

Amazing (Karma) how the guy that was squealing no split from the 7th rd on was still on the starting line when Folk was at 100’+. What a performance! LMFAO

If there’s a decent money race in Iowa, Tucker is going to be in the mix at some point in the weekend.

A quiet, humble, hard-working kid from a great family and it was no surprise to see him holding the check.

Congrats, Tucker!!!

Vetman and Tony... I agree 100%!! Tucker has been a "tough out" since Josh stuck him in a JR!
If you get by him you had a great run, he doesn't miss very often.
A GREAT REWARD for the family dedication to getting better and better.
Way to go Tucker, Josh, Crissy, Taylor and Tanner Kanselaar!!!!! "WHAT A DAY!!!!"

I liked it when Jed asked him if there was anybody that helped him with the car he wanted to thank. He said nope. Nobody helps us we do it ourselves.

Any idea what was the actual payout? Not the split, but the total purse?

The Million Dollar Drag Race
23h

Unfortunately, as most are aware, there were some unexpected complications during the 27th Annual Million Dollar Drag Race contested at Capital City Motorsports Park.
At Folk Promotions, our goal is to deliver events that include an environment, race structure, payout, facility, and racer experience of the upmost quality. Sadly, there were aspects that fell short of both ours and our racer’s expectations during the Million Dollar Race week.
We want everyone to know that we do not take this situation lightly and are making changes to avoid similar issues moving forward.
That said, a new date and location for the 2023 Million will be announced in the near future. We will then release details regarding our plans to show appreciation towards those who attended this year’s event.
Thank you for your continued support as we look forward to making improvements for the 28th Annual Million Dollar Drag Race.
