went to Amarillo last week, they pay 15 for starting and 400 to win. On a track so dry and dusty couldn't see the air cleaner in front of you. Several cars torn up including mine. 3 or 4 totaled. Won't go back.

If you want to have a good laugh(or get really depressed), take the total cost of a typical winning car, and divide that figure by the winner's payout. That will give you the total number of shows you will have to WIN to recoup your investment, NOT COUNTING UPKEEP! The lower the number, the better. Every year, this figure creeps upward, and the car count decreases. Purses have not increased very much at all for the last 15 years or longer. For what it's worth,this figure tends to be a lot lower for a drag car, at least at my local tracks. Hhhhmmm.
