Excluding weekends, it's 18 days between Parker and the Mint. February 6th to March 1st, day before time trials. Ouch...

Don't most the TT and Class 1 guys have paid employees prepping their vehicles or their actual job is prepping with shops full of extra parts J/ K. This really hurts the small guys that work all day at a job and then self preps at night and weekends with limited funds. IMO Without all the hupla and Freemont I think Parker is a better race if you have to choose. Especially if your not a TT , 1 or 6100. Its awesome to those that can do both though i'm jealous.

KOOK!
You could go spectate at one of them and help someone else out. Not racing, but better than staying home watching tv.

You will really have to burn the midnight oil to not race at either of them. Good luck, if you need any help not racing let me know and I will lend you a hand.

O look the douche of the sport has spoken. Sit down Crystal Pete. You honestly make me sick. Every post you make just shows how foolish you are. You cant get along with damn near anyone. I stand by what I said. Having one race less then a month after the next is a joke.

For all you know Casey set up the schedule like that for a reason, probably not his reasons. He probably thinks it's BS too. But at this point in time it is what it is, what else are you going to do. Stay home and not race?

In an age where SCORE had to get rid of a race and MORE/SNORE are combining races to keep them healthy, kudos to Casey for a stacked year.

The date change for the Mint was not optimum for anyone. BITD included. This was not up to Mad Media or BITD.

The city / county needed the change due to NASCAR being moved to the Mint 400 weekend.

The Mint is a big deal. Financially, NASCAR is tons bigger. Hotels sell out. Prices sky rocket for everything here and all eyes are on the events for them.

The Mint overall has worked hard to make it something special. If it was run on the same weekend you lose the parade, and strip or Fremont activities and just pay skyrocketed rates for a day of racing.

This will be tight for anyone to do but I hope it works out and we still see great quality events for both with awesome entry numbers.
