For permanent tracks it is not needed to change layout.

use the porkchop layout. longer lap times, spreads the field out, safer for turn marshalls, easier on motors, more fun layout imo

I have no idea if ROAR and the Race Management Team will have a Masters class at the Nationals that is a question for Doug. I would bet that if they do they will follow the rules and it will be 45 years of age.

Some of the money got used to:

Buy trophies.
Rent the track (it is a county facitlity).
Rent the electricity (it doesn't come with the track).
Pay staff to run the race.
Buy chemicals.
Print fliers, schedules etc.
Maintain the equipment.
Pay for licensing.

What business is it of yours where the money went? What is the problem with actually making money? Is there a rule somewhere that says all track operators must only break even, or lose money?

It's none of our business, but lets just go out and have some fun here. Lets say the race operator took in $7000 in entry fees. Lets say all the stuff above cost him $1500. That leaves a profit of $5500 just on the entry fee. My guess is what he did with all the money is that trip around the world. Maybe he paid some bills, mortgage, car payment, power bill, gas bill, food, and reinvested some back into the track to make the next race better. There are usually about 4 races a year at that track and this race is the biggest of the regular events. My guess is that whatever money was left over went into a massage, a few days off and then gas money so he could go back to his regular job where he actually makes a living. You don't need a degree in business to figure out he isn't getting wealthy on running RC car races.
If you think the entry is too high, you have a right to state your opinion and not come to the event. It is none of your business where the money goes. A T-shirt... come on. If you didn't have fun, or you feel you were wronged or treated unfairly, just say so.

That is in a county park.
That is a permanant facility.
That has been around for several years.
That has hosted the Nats previously.
That has a large drivers stand.
That has a tire truing station.
That has a body wash area.
That has electricity.
That runs a tight race program.
