That's $3.00 dollars above what he payed to enter (1st place payout would be $33.00).
But I don't think I really addressed your comment. You are probably are correct, this Series will not bring out new participants to our facility. I did not intend for it to. My intention was to give the competitive drivers something to shoot for, and the facility more exposure. I believe I've succeeded on both points.
The 1st round was our biggest turnout so far this season. Maybe not what I hoped for, but good drivers having good times.
Their was a lot of speculation and conversation coming up to the race. Some good, some bad. But all about the facility, and I enjoy that.
Now regarding the new drivers. I spoke to several at the track day of the race. They stayed to watch the competition. They may not want to run the Series, but they WILL be back. We even sold 2 FTB4's preorder, and I'm pretty sure they were not for bashing at home.
I believe what new racers want is a well run track with good competition. Anyone here on that nite would have seen that.
