Thank you all. Hoping other brands notice, follow suit, and get back into our sport!
And yet Dan200 stays on. "It's mind bottling."Being a part of the Honda team, Jeff stresses to us all the time that we are representing Honda and our sponsors above all. We all have to be very uniform in our appearance. I actually put in our pit books what to wear each day. Now with the Talons as part of the team, it’s double the stress as we are under the Honda Powersports eye as well as the Honda auto side.
BroGil, I am aware of all of that info, and I appreciate all the years of fighting for land use. My question was simply where you found that Russell Wiener was a Bernie Sanders supporter? I found nothing showing this, and with Bernie being notoriously against billionaire donors, it wouldnt happen regardless. I guess I just missed your tongue in cheek.Burleson, other than you totally missing the tongue in cheek portion of the post, let me educate you a little bit. Many years ago, teams were sponsored by places like Taco Bell, McDonalds, Del Taco, Pernod, J.D. Brand, Good Year, Western Auto, Laredo, Mac, Snap On, FORD, CHEVY, TOYOTA, DODGE, NISSAN, etc... Even in our regional market. Then, a guy named Cranston and a group called The Sierra Club decided our sport was public enemy #1. They pushed and pushed and eventually their Nationwide push helped end much of our regional support from national chains who felt that the message they were presenting to people in Vermont and Texas and Washington and Florida was hitting their bottom line enough to drop the sponsorship stuff or at least pull it back to the point that the regional market would use regional suppliers to be the name used for the advertising. Some companies just bailed altogether, like Nissan. When these attacks happen, big companies look at the big picture, not the regional one. With the presidential campaign this year, the effects social media have today, the knee jerk reaction by the public for following both truth and fiction before anything is sorted and proven (see the anti-vax crowd for help), companies may be looking at the NATIONAL MESSAGE being played out with Climate Change during the election year and might want to stay clear of any crazed social media posts that tie sponsors to anyone that could potentially HAMMER 50% of their market potential by tying them to anti-planet carbon producing, tree and plant killing desert racing, especially their biggest market, Millennials, Gen X, Gen Y, and Gen Z who seem to live and learn everything in life from social media. But what do I know, I have only been fighting the land use battle since 1983. I have no background about this.
It's not just ticket prices, what does it cost to go entry level racing in off road these days?less fans??? hmmmm, i know, lets raise ticket price's, sounds like a good business model.nfl too^.ps kids today of the public education variety are taught race fuel& hot dogs are evil
Are you talking about SNORE/MORE Class 2000, or BITD Class 2000? (which is SNORE 1600). Either way, I'm not sure how you are coming up with that math.Under 20k in class 2000 for the entire year.
That includes the truck itself, parts, fuel, transport, prep, entry fees, etc.
Seen it on the heart monitor many times.This thread seems to have curved off course. Has anyone actually talked to Rockstar. Maybe its the expectation of lower income. I understand there is a new study showing energy drink with a link to heart arrhythmia's in children and adults. I ain't making it up. Everyone getting jacked up on chemicals. I know there is always some study showing everything is bad. Just saying.
I generally stay away from them for this reason. And my dad died young from a heart attack so I don't need any extra risks. Many years ago I mixed Red Bull and Mountain Dew on long drives to stay awake. No more of that! LOL. I am sure drinking them in moderation is fine but I cringe when I see people drinking 3 or 4+ in a day...This thread seems to have curved off course. Has anyone actually talked to Rockstar.
