350 entries at $75 a pop. Not a bad weeks pay even for an entire crew. I think Joey and Jimmy may be the only 2 event co-ordinators who found a way to profit in RC. Except of course the big retailers.

the year before had 440 or there abouts

440 x 75$ = 33,000$ 12-13k in shirts , trophies and misc. fees , some money for the host track and joey profits roughly 13-15k for the week to divvy up between the entourage he brings

I am the West Coast Distributor for Cold Fusion Fuel and I will be at the Nitro Challenge 2011. If anyone is interested in trying this fuel please send me a PM. As there will be no shipping charges or delivery fee.

Man you need a little bit of both. The nitro pit is a huge track but The Dirt crew will build a challenging track. I know I didnt like going up a tooth on the CB last year but there wasnt a huge long straight away. We will see about this year.

Still a nice weeks pay by any means and dont forget about the additional income from sponsors. Joey gets cash from them since he does not give prizes.
