I understand paying the best racers (pro's) but how come no one ever throws a few dollars towards the sportsman ? WE spend WAAAYYY more money to race and we only get free prizes. Don't get me wrong i love to race even though i stink at it but even last place in NASCAR makes a little something. And i pay the same exact amount to race as the pro's and even get a shorter race. Now if i was good this would be a moot point but it just seems wrong to keep the little man down.

First off, there are no sportsman racers in NASCAR.

Second, pro's usually spend more on travel in a year than the average sportsman spends for everything in that same year.

Third, many insurance policies available through various hobby organizations will not cover anyone who races for a living. You can be sponsored, and can even race for cash and still enjoy personal liability coverage from a group like the AMA, but if you are a paid pro you have to provide your own liability coverage.

Fourth, sportsman classes usually don't pay because the vast majority of those running sportsmen prefer prizes over cash. Some people won't even sign up if it's a cash only race because they feel r/c car racing is a hobby not a sport.

Fifth (and most important), anyone who wants a shot at the cash is free to sign up in the class(es) that have a cash payout.

It's less about shunning the "little guy" and more about accommodating two very different reasons for wanting to race in the same venue at the same time. Not everyone who races an r/c car (including plenty of drivers with mad skillz) care about sponsorship or cash payouts. Trust me, if the sportsman classes at this years race are anything like they have been in years past, racing sportsman will be just as tight as it is in the pro classes, just a tick slower.
