Hopefully it turns out better for SUNSET than it did for Delaware ;) just about everyone was glad to see them  go including the track .

Just one of the returns from NASCAR and there sponsors points funds went up $36725

From my calculations based on 36,40 and 69 registered cars, with 2 crew per team the extra costs from NASCAR are $30,625 over last year, with a greater points fund of $36725, so I'll agree overall that is a net gain for the drivers. I'll admit I was wrong there.

Still sucks to be a part time car, or out of the top 10 where you are not paid from the points fund and paying more (obviously you know where I am biased) , but for those in the money, you are right it is better. I guess you are rewarding loyalty and performance. So be it.

Its a confusing system of money going back and forth, not knowing where you stand at the end, which is why I always said I'd race for backgate for two and a hamburger.

I'll give you the lead on the beer bet Mark, and in all honesty hope you do win it. Thanks for stepping up and taking time for the debate, might clear it up for others who had the same questions.

Why the interest Evan? Because anyone who has ever raced is never really done racing till they are 6 feet under. Change of circumstances, I and most others would be back in a heart beat (nothing directly pointed at Sunset there). So you sit and evaluate from the cheap seats. Want to discredit my opinion because I'm not out there in a car - so be it, I've done that to many others myself ;)

Thanks Ross we will do our best and just for the record you would have to back the drivers out of your calculation they paid last year as well, if you average it out to a hundred dollars per car last year which is low but easy math on a 140 drivers that is $14000 now you would have to subtract that from ur Nascar total $30625 sub 14000 =$16625 dif $20000 plus dollar increase in points money over last year when all said and done.
The drivers have always had to pay reg either track or Nascar doesn't matter which.
Have a good summer see u for my beer in Oct.

i was just stating what was said at flamboro meeting...if they paid back membership fees cool..
i kno back at barrie days when mark ran the place, 5 of us towed from flammy for an invitational with no place to park and mark had them cut the neighbour fence down and dropped a load of gravel for a ramp to get to it...was pretty funny and memorable...lol..
atleast the pavement cars arent all having to drop $500 down on a transponder like ALL the dirt cars now ;)
