I'd rather race for purse #2. We all have bad nights, but when we are running good we should get rewarded.

niether, our local payouts are already better throughout the whole field then the two options at one track we race its 400 to win 75 to start, with other bonus incentives, and the other is 500 to win 100 to start and no bonus incentives generally.

Most tracks in the Dallas area already pay the second choice or better. I would rather run for the second than first anyday. I don't go out to the track just to get the money to start the main, I go out to win. The more money up front the better is the way I feel about it. When I don't finish well, $20 isn't going to make me feel any better! Just my opinion, though.

Man, both of those are better than what we get, but if I had to choose, I'd say #1. It's always the same guys in the top 5 and they certainly don't need any help in the finance department.

#1 we only have $1000 payout though.I agree w/the fact of most of the guys that win all the time don't need it as bad as some of us.i just hope to make out even with getting the crew in

I guess with the numbers above I'd have to go with number 1. $30 Bucks to show that number looks more like tow money if you don't make the feature.

I say #2 but add another $100 to the bottom by adding $10 to the bottom 10.

Number 1, everybody needs a bit of money to race on from week to week. Mods were SUSPOSED to be a classs for the common man to race in....

My answer is 1, being a rookie it would be nice to get a little more than tow money. Besides aren't we all in it to have fun any way?

# 1

Keeps the newer racers coming back too. eventually those guys will get better. if they have the drive. Maybe some laps led incentive too!

#2- I race to win. But I understand people choosing 1. There is only 1 winner a night!

Jammin-
I like #1.
We have a series here in NY, that is "For the drivers, By the drivers" called N.E.A.R.A. (North East Affordable Racers Association)
that pays just about exactly what you have listed as #1.
