Why are these racers always getting ripped on here?  Racing is an expensive sport that few are able to financially afford.  You have to do what makes the best sense financially to get you to the track.  At the end of the day, drivers just want to drive and it doesn't matter to me what they have to do to get there, just get there!

There is no profit or anything close to breaking even. You lose money the minute you pull out of your driveway.

I'm sorry, but $50.00 for one night??? Come on!! Ive got tickets for Portsmouth, Ohio - $100,000 to win, $79.00 for 3 nites including pit pass!!!

Also, the Dirt Track at Charlotte, 3 nights, LM's, Sprints and Big Block Mods, $89.00 for 3 nites including pit pass!!!!

$25.00 would be a comparable price!!

25 is low for a 20k race. 35-40 is pretty normal for 20k.

Everyone needs to stop crying about local racing ticket prices, because when it's all gone, what will you do

Yeah, but the cream of the crop were there.  I'll take quality over quantity every time.

Blair, Pegher, Norris, Ferree, Angelichio, Miley, King, Flinner all there.  Angelichio blew a motor unfortunately, but all the big local names are in full force.  The big boys including Bloomer, O'Neils, Marlar, Richards, Owens, Mcreadie, etc. etc. all there.  Needless to say, this race is still viewed as a big deal.
