Concord Speedway in N.C has the same rule but no minimum on the amount of gas purchased.

do they check your cell every week when you pull in to make sure it's mt if not just buy your 5 gallons and carry it with you every week and say see i did buy your gas or get all the drivers together and park all your cars in the parking lot and just have a car show don't let anybody sign in if they ask why tell them that there gas gives you gas and it realy stinks around here lol

can you say "greedy promoter"? local level promoters are going to end grassroots racing with "fat cat" tactics such as this. the funny thing about it is they're shooting themselves in the foot. once they make it unaffordable for the average guy to race, they'd better learn to farm, because no one is going to racing on their land....

Have you asked them why? Forget keeping things fair - you can put whatever you want in it after you buy it. However there may be legal reasons. I read an article, some years back, about DOT citing stockcar drivers for transporting fuel. But the smart money still says it's pure greed.

Yeah A TRACK in Arkansas is the same way. He cuts your purse if you dont buy fuel from him. That is kinda BS from my perspective.

I don't know where you are talking about DMS but I know where we race you can either buy it there or where ever you want to. It is also the same way at NCA speedway also.
