The people who are really getting paid dont run stock. There are some high caliber drivers who may get some help that run stock, but at the end of the day they still have to pay the entry and hotel, travel, etc. I can attest for some of my friends (Haynes, Dodge, Xavier) for example who are all running stock 12th. Dodge and X are sponsored, but do not get paid, and must pay their own entries, hotel, tires, etc etc. Haynes doesnt even have that luxury of a sponsor, he is a complete privateer at the moment.

Im pretty sure if you wanted to pay them, I think theyd move out of stock.
