what does it cost currently to run on "race day" i cant seem to find it posted anywhere?
Anyway, I like the idea. as you may know i race motorcycles and i can enter the race there for less $$$ than a practice day at the kart track and win approx $150 when they have a light turn out of say 12-15 entries in the class. when we have special events its still only about $30 to enter and your running for $600 with about 40 entries in the class.
i do find it interesting that so many kart tracks DONT race for money, i dont know what the reasoning is for that but i found it to be a little odd that that was how it works, hence one of the reasons i run used tires and hit practice days instead of race days.
overall the economy does SUCK, most of the other race tracks i know of around here have seen much lighter turnouts, dont know if racing for cash can lure some people back in or not in todays tough econimic climate???? heck for that matter i have only raced my bike 4-5 times this year and only had the kart out once, i simply cant afford to spend $120 every time i need to fill my truck now when it used to be $45 just a few years ago. i would say i go to the tracks about 4 times less now than i did 2 years ago.... my boss doesnt seem to understand "cost of living increases" and "inflation"....
