    Hopefully they'll be a lot of Late models there since it IS the Pepsi nationals

    $20 seems a bit steep for 2000 to win show - will they get more than 20 late models?

    I would hope so but I wouldn't count on it

    Oh I think they'll get about 23/24 late models and yes $ 20 is a little much for a $2000 late model show but they're paying $1000 for Mods also increased money for the other 2 classes so if you look at it this way $3000 for lates and mods and probably $800 for the other 2 classes $3800

    They don't only pay for 1st place finishes. Glad to have the Pepsi Nationals back and glad to pay $20 for some good racing.

    Cool - maybe a good payout throughout the field will bring a good car count

    How much to start the mod and late model features?

    I looked at
    I looked at the flyer it doesn't say how much the starting pay is but as a guess I would say $500 for Late Models and $200 for the Modifieds

    Not a chance if I had to guess going off past shows it's the pay on the flyer for first place then second place will get normal first place money third will get normal second place money and on down start pay may be bumped to 200 for LM and 125 for mods at most not complaining at all about the pay just giving a realistic estimate on pay

    That's kind of what I was thinking also Rusty. Was hoping to see them bump the pay throughout some, we'll see I guess.

    Ok, if my doctor's appointment on Friday goes ok, I plan on attending. HOWEVER, I went to Haubstadt last week for a $10,000 to win USAC/$1,000 to win Modified show, and paid $25 to get in. Just sayin.

    We also went...with that bonus money from some company, the winner's share was 12,500. What a great show. Place was packed, they said it was definitely one of the largest crowds in track history. We were on the road by 10p

    All you people do is complain.. Don't want to pay $20 to see some great racing but will pay $50 - $100 to go watch a lousy pro sports team play.

    I'll be there supporting a track that has some of the best weekly racing in the country!
