Thank you and I totally get what you are saying. As long as I make enough to cover my fuel and travel, I am good. Yes your numbers make a lot of sense, but we have to almost weigh out what is worth more the 20k or allowing more people to participate.
Also Captain brought up a good point, why should the registration be higher to cover the drags. Dyno is already on the list, we charge extra and usually get about 25 cars in. 4 years ago we charged $100 extra for drag racing, barely got 20 cars registered.
Also, there are other things to consider for costs, not just the drag strip. And the money needs to be available early as for LVMS, Spring Mountain or any other major track event, 50% must be paid at the time of reservation. We usually break the 100 mark around late June, this poses a problem when you have to reserve the track a year in advance.
I know drag racing is a staple of from before, I enjoy it too, but it has become difficult to cater to it. Also, the demand is not high enough. If someone is willing to push for it to happen for 2020, please contact me direct, and I will receive them with open arms.
