Steve Sisko Claims $1.1 Million, 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, Michigan, over the weekend. He defeated competitor Bill Swain during the final round to collect the biggest payday in drag racing history.

"I know 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.
