The big leagues are full of pot smokers, drug users and professional drinkers! Further, several of the biggest names, have NOTHING to show for their wins and late round exits because someone else is paying the tab and/or supplying the car and in some cases that’s the promoter.
That said, I’ve got the money, cars and my driver has the skills to compete in the big leagues yet I and others in the same position chose not to support certain promoters/events for all the reasons mentioned above in addition to the long rumored cheating that no promoter is doing anything about it and nobody wants to talk about that!This message has been edited.

Let's not kid ourselves - bracket racing (even the so-called big money racing) compares to real big league racing as rec-league softball for guys over 50 compares to Major League Baseball.
Anybody seen any spectators paying money to watch this so-called big league racing? Yeah, me neither.
And most these races are paying more than a top fuel funnycar and prostock title combined. So what does it matter if there are fans in the stands?
And 100% of the purse at "big league bracket races" was paid by the racers themselves in entry fees and buybacks. Bracket racing (while I love it) ain't anywhere close to big league racing. Period. End-of-story.
And what proof do you have that none of those sponsors aren’t kicking in a single dime?
Wait they don't have Bracket Kings the tv show on Discovery?
Right where only a special selected group is allowed to race with fixed outcome worse than professional wrestling.
Sly is lost as some others, BIG money bracket racing often pays more than the actual so called PRO's...Facts. IT is bigger from payout stand points. You will NEVER see fans at a BIG money races...EVER. The fans don't pay the bills at these races...WE DO.
Ya'll have a great day!
Eeeeegads…so my take here on the definition of "BIG" leaguer is the depth of your pocket.....just wow....
We all have boundaries in life, when I was working full time and had the funds, I didn’t have the time. Now its just the opposite, so I guess my chance to make it in the Major leagues is out the window?
That's ok, I do what I do, because its what I choose to do....
They will if they can up the attitude and continue to allow bad behavior. Worked for the street outlaw group.
If directed at me, I think you got me all wrong. I even said maybe it is the big league when it comes to bracket racing. I couldn't care less what it is labeled. It simply doesn't apply to me one way or the other.
As far as ridicule and what not: Like I said, I have an opinion as does everyone else. And I will state it as I please as long as I'm not silenced. I wasn't offended by Scott's post. I'm simply asking for clarification. Giving your opinion about the way something went down at a race that you didn't attend is hardly whining. Can we start calling each other racist or snowflakes now? It was just a queer (if I can still say that) choice of words IMO. I don't know who is rediculing anyone. It's almost universal across the racing sites that the Hunter situation could and should have been handled differently. And most agree with the NHRA sanction handed down. If we are going to call every opinion that is different from our own "whining", then well damn we can rename the internet!
Hell it seems like there is whining about people stating their opinions now. Whining about calling our the lack of response to the Hunter situation. Whining about anyone calling anything about these big money races unsavory. If you are going to race these things, you might want to add thicker skin to the list of things needed.

In an attempt to change the handle from Big money* to Big league. This thread came about.

whomper is dead on egg right here.
no offense to anyone who is a Big Leaguer as i am a little leaguer. but not bragging at all so please don't misunderstand what i am about to say but my math question is to the big leagers. i know what i spent this year little league racing and i know how much i won little league racing. i know my round win/loss record for the year. i will put my win $ vs my spend $ ratio against 99% of the big leaguer ratio all day every day. and not sure that i saw the OP gracing very many big money winner circle pics.
granted no one made big leagers spend or go. but also no one made the little leagers not go. to me at the end of the day we all race where we want. i am smart enough to do the math on the big league and soon the OP will to. maybe he is just slower at learning math than little leaguers. i don't hate on anyone who wants to spend their money as it does not matter to me. but please do not insult me by saying i am not smart enough to understand high pressure situations as i have been in a few of these over the years. they may have not been for 500k but to me world championship and divisional points battles are priceless. so the dollar figure is a moot point.
you do you and we will do us. you keep taking it in the azz with the wheel flip and pot smokers and i will keep doing what i do.

Of course you are allowed! (unless you're trying to race a motorcycle or center-steer altered/dragster, as our November specialty events are for door cars and left-steer roadsters only.)

The big money moniker is more accurate.
High stakes bracket racing is good too.
For the record, I know all these guys pauley, you nor 1320 do apparently.
They don't do drugs. Some drink after the races, none during the race. There's nothing wrong with it.
They all make way more money than you do drag racing, 10% or more deals with each other.
The velocity of money is much greater big money racing.
You two are speculating.
The local pizza joint will kick in a few $$$ for jerseys for the over-50 rec league softball team too.
If anyone's insulted your clearly defensive...
If you felt a post was directed at you... please, its ok to disagree.
Mickey, you don’t know shyt and ain’t ever done shyt outside your duck pound, no mind raced for $10k and more with your POS.
