Boonville, IN (17 October 2016) Tyler Sizemore age 21, is preparing for a journey to an event that everyone in the drag racing community simply calls “The Million.” The Million is an epic event in Montgomery, Alabama where the best of the best show up to do battle with the hopes of taking home the years largest payout. Drag racing as a sport has caught fire and attention in the media from reality TV show “Street Outlaws” on the Discovery Channel. This week in Montgomery, Tyler will see show stars David “Bird” Jones and Disco Dean Karns in the staging lanes as they compete at over 140 mph covering 660 ft. in over just 4 seconds. Reality show stars or not, Tyler wants to prove he has what it takes to compete at “The Million.
Sizemore will be able to race with a little less weight on his shoulders. The entry fee to “The Million” is a hefty $2000. Now most will say that’s crazy and they would be correct, however for Sizemore he won his entry in the cold snowy month of January this year during the 2nd Annual DragstersForSale.com Practice Tree Race in Evansville for a $100 entry fee. A practice tree race simulates the first step in leaving the starting line of a drag race. Tyler competed against 32 of the best drivers in the Midwest to win his entry. The DragstersForSale.com Practice Tree Race is organized by ownership group at DragstersForSale.com. “We wanted to provide an opportunity to people who really cannot afford to go spend $2000 on an entry to the event. Giving the little guy, or even perhaps someone that is not necessarily a well-known racer a chance on the big stage, we are already planning for 2017 to continue to offer opportunities for the local racers.” Don O’Neal marketing director for DragstersForSale.com stated. Tyler is going to have his chance.
Tyler will be supported by his family while driving his 2006 Danny Nelson Dragster, powered by 565 cubic inches of Oakley Motorsports. Mickey Thompson Tires, Greg Slack Converters, AFCO, Baldman Transmission and Kooks Headers are on board to help the young 21 year old racer have confidence to chase his dream at “The Million.”
“The Million” will be broadcast live online https://themilliononline.com/the-million/
