The race at Glen Helen this weekend was GREAT! I was just wondering, why aren't there more racers?? Two 15 minute heats of racing for each class, 50% payback, low entries (racing & spectators) SO WHY NOT MORE INTEREST??? :confused:

For us it's a money thing. We only had enough to do 2 series (LOORRS andM4SX). I think that alot of teams/racers are tied to construction too, and with no buliding going on...no money....no racing.

For us, it's a money thing too. Now if I could get everyone else in the class to agree on having no payback, that would drop the entry fees down inline with what we could swing $$$ wise.

If its the $$$ you are interested in Glen Hellen HAS THE BEST PAY BACK! Better than LOORRS or M4XS.

It's not the money you'll get after the race but the money before the race....race prep.....travel(gas)......entry fees.....etc. Plus it's hard to race Glen Helen one week then M4SX the next and then LOORRs the next. That's hard on pocket and the car week after week after week, plus being a working stiff...it's hard to find the time for all that race car prep'en.
