i guess im lucky out here in california. our track pays 250 to win and 30 to start the a-main. $35 pit pass per night $90 membership at the begining of the year than pit passes are $25. how do you guys afford to race with only 100 to win. i dont expect the track to pay for all my racing, but i shure would like some help.

Ok, get ready so laugh. 1st=$50 2nd=$30 3rd=$20..... oh yeah, and a huge 18" trophy. Pit pass is $20 so if ya dont win you get the shaft. Our track owner is cheap, weekly attendance is 6000 people..... you do the math...... Fonda speedway in NY.....

chad it all depends on the class the guys that have money in there cars like the imca type stock cars pay 25 at the begining of the year 15 for a pit pass and get 300 to win 50 to start and have up around 10-15000 in a car where on the other hand i would sell everything i own for 2500. people don't beliecve me but last year after i got the car finished i had 50 bucks in my racing check book and it took all year to bring it down to nothing. i started every main so even the ones i didn't finish with the 25 tow money it paid for my pit pass and the fuel in my car and truck

I was told from the superstock rep at the local NASCAR track which is about 10 minutes away that its just a HOBBY, grant it I agree but why do I have to pay $100 per tire(asphalt)that are track spec and only good for maybe 3 races. I was a NASCAR member for quite a few years until I decided enough was enough, not saying there is anything wrong with NASCAR but you'd ought to try running this track, the NASCAR point classes are the PPG modifieds and the SUPERSTOCKS. The mods get paid pretty good but as for the Supers forget it, they cry car count I think a 21 car feild is pretty good, throw in a double main a start from scratch a 10th and 8th place finish(from scatch mind you) and a whopping $56 for my efforts, oh well, run 3 figure 8 races and get $500 not even a NASCAR sanctioned class, guess people like blood. Not knocking figure 8 but i spend alot of money just to turn left and not to have the car or me destroyed in an intersection. So in 2001 I said ##### them and decided to drive about 2 hours away to run dirt low and behold the concessions were lots cheaper the entry for my crew was cheaper, my gas and im still running the same tires lots better for the kid and besides 2001 was the best season ive ever had and the most fun. I have no intensions of going back to that asphalt track, in a nutshell find whats best for you I dont have big money sponsors, but if you have to travel(im not above that) go for it. I just found a cheaper(at least to me) place to race my toy. Eddie

WOW,I couldn't afford to race at some of the tracks mentioned. I didn't know Arkansas paid that well. At the track we race at, if you run in the top five you can actually make a little money. As long as you don't tear to much up. Street's 400 to win, Hobby 300 to win, stock mini's 200 to win.

our local track here in iowa pays $350 to win and $110 for 10th place and i think the 24th place gets $50 and a $30 tow fee so we are good over here.

To paraphrase the BIGGEST promoter in the Northeast. A racecar is like a boat and I am just providing the ponds! With an attitude like that how much do you think he pays at his tracks.
