What does it cost you to get in the back gate - car + driver on a weekly basis?

We have a $35 entry fee we have to pay every week and I've told others here that the Northwest is the only place in the country that has weekly entry fees.
right or wrong?

Here in Ohio it is 20.00 per person to get into the pits. There isn't any seperate entry fee unless it's a special race. Last year we raced in KY and it was the same 20.00 per person.

Charleston is a $20 pit pass per person, no other entry fees.
Vermilion has a gate fee (general grandstand fee) and then an added pit pass fee once you get to the pit entrance area. The total is around $20.
If late models are in the show, the pass/gate fees are increased, sometimes double depending on the show.

In Indiana we pay 20.00 car entry and pit pass 20.00.So 400.00 just for the driver to get into the pits plus crew members!

Central Texas a 20.00 pit pass is that is required. Dallas -- Fort Worth I understand is 25.00 for a pit pass. At this point unless it's a special race, their is not a car entry fee.

Its 20 bucks pit pass no seperate fees for the car or driver and I refuse to pay an entry fee. If the tracks closest to me start to ask for it I will race somewhere else even if its farther away. Its the principal.

Racing is one the few sports where the entertainers have to pay to get in. The pit pass is enough. I am not paying entry fee, once everyone starts doing it, the word will spread and just like drag racing they will ask for it at every track.

I suggest if your local track ask for a seperate entry fee that you race somewhere else, before this cancer spreads to the rest of the tracks !!!
