I was curious how they do things at southern tracks.  I checked the entry apps for the Alabama State Championships at East Alabama Speedway a couple of weeks ago. The super lates were to run 43 lap $5000 to win features on Friday and Saturday with a 100 lap $20,000 to win main on Sunday. Early entry fees were $100 per car Friday and $100 Saturday and $150 on Sunday. Reserved parking spots in the infield were $60 each. I didn't see a per person pit fee. A 3 day reserved grandstand top 3 rows advanced ticket was $125 each. They had 7 or 8 total classes running and the lowest entry fee for for 4cly. was $60 per car. They got 29 supers on Sunday and the track was so rough I think 5 finished. They even had cautions so drivers could get more tear offs. Just throwing this info out there but people in Pa. would go nuts if a track charged these prices.

Your entry fee/to win numbers and results are for the National 100. 

 

In September, for the Alabama State Championships, the entry/to win was $100/$2500 Friday and Saturday and $125/$4500 Sunday.  Same cost for parking spots for both weekends.  That had to be tough to swallow considering the difference in payouts from ASC to Nat 100.


If at first you don't succeed, then maybe you just suck.
