We will see,but if gas goes up to $5 a gallon under a Biden administration,that "could" affect car counts.

gas was over $4/gallon in some parts of the country under biden's former boss and it didn't effect anything.

Maybe, but less likely if they already have your entry... Wink

But agree with Ed. It won’t make much difference to the folks that attend these races.

This. Those folks find that much of a dollar difference in the seat cushions of their stacker's living quarters. Take care. Tom Worthington


If it seems that bracket racing has gotten too expensive for you, maybe you are just doing it wrong.

Agree with Eds post as to particpation next year. In 2009 I paid 4.50 a gallon for diesel and thats what it took to get where I wanted to go. Im thinking that there are alot of old racers like me that if we want to go race,were not going to care that much about about fuel prices. Believe me we will ***** about it. But in the end its a choice and life goes on.

Really reasonable questions given racers still have a credit to a series that ran in the early 2000s that lasted a few years before the promoter pocketed entries and went under. That promoter had house cars as well not paying at the gate and taking percentages of advertised payouts. That series itself was in 2000 what SFG is today. Given history tends to repeat itself asking fair questions to protect your investment in a business is reasonable. Deleting the questions and avoiding the answers is not.

Shawn, everyone that pre enters these races regardless of who the promoter is, knows the answer to these questions whether they want to admit it or not and has decided the risk of their entry fee is worth getting the discount for pre entry. Those that don't want to risk it pay at the gate IF they can.

To me,the biggest risk of pre-entry right now is not the promoter,but the Governor of the state that the race is being held.

The Governor could decide that it is too dangerous to have a race because of Covid-19 in their state.Or the new President could too, I suppose.

And if people don't care about $5 a gallon gas,why worry about pre entry?Just pay full price.

Then don’t pre enter any races If you’re so worried. How they want to enter is their choice as well no matter what the price of gas is.

Not my circus, not my monkeys but does SFG require a pre-entry? I thought you could pay at the gate.

I just don't see the problem, he is offering a discount if you pre-enter. I assume by the amount of pre-entries he gets then he has an idea of how many cars will show up. If you don't want to pre-enter then show up and pay and race.

I agree with you.

Also, its going to be interesting to see at the Spring Fling Galot. They can handle a ton of cars in there though. They'll just use all of the area they have for monster trucks, and tractor pulls. Might have to bring fuel to the lanes with you, but you won't have a problem fitting trailers
