Ed, my bet is Sisko and Serra have better days with the money they won...that's life changing or NO?

Both had impressive wins but drove for someone else which split the money up more...

Just what I witnessed with my own eyes...

Chris, better days ain't life changing. Many competing at these events make more $ every year at their job/or business than any million winner has walked away with. Some make a lot more.

Sisko continues to go to work everyday. Serra races to keep a roof over his head.

If the day ever comes that the winner actually walks away with 1 million dollars then it can be called life changing but I still don't consider $600k after taxes life changing.

I beg to differ. $600k may not be life changing to you Ed because apparently your life is so perfect. But $600k to me would be. Hell 100K would be. All debt payed off and a healthy amount left over in the bank is life changing. Just the stress alone of having things paid for and not have to worry about it is life changing. Just because its not life changing to you in your opinion doesn't mean its not to someone else.

I can see where "life changing" is a subjective term. IMO, most people would consider the amount of money that both the winner and runner up took home would be life changing. I'm with Stephen that having bills paid or being able to put money away or invest it would be life changing. It may not mean the individual can stop working and go out and buy a complete new racing operation, etc., but it will certainly change their life in some form or another.

So we come to find that if you live in Idaho and Wisconsin apparently $100k is "life changing" money, at least to these two broke dycks. Laughing very hard

Meanwhile, I know kids fresh out of college making more than that.

Amazing.

Take care. Tom Worthington


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