Default Could This Help Save Your Local Track and Racing in General?

Recently while looking through some older threads, I read something that I found quite interesting. The thread was about tires. However, it had been sidetracked to focusing on the price of tires. More specifically the price of tires a on-line place selling for versus what the local guys could sell for.

Anyway, someone had mentioned a "concept" I thought deserved further review. So I ask you;

Should manufactures and distributors be selling (Race Related Products) to Tracks (Hobby Shops with Tracks) at steeper discounts than to non race promoting Shops (eps on-line). This could be considered as an insentive to the Track-Operating Shops to keep racing going.

Sure I may have a Bias or two on the subject, but I still feel this should be looked at as an option to help secure the future of the racing side of our hobby.
