Yea, that "junk" costs alot of money and time. Some people just don't realize the time money and effort ALL teams and divisions put in during the week and off season. Heck sometimes they put on a better show than the headliners.
As far as I'm concerned, anybody who is willing to strap in and compete in ANY class has my respect, as long as they compete fairly and do their best. Any owner/team willing to put in the time and money required to compete in any class, and the persistence to do it week in and week out, has my respect. And the officials and track staff willing to put their time in to run the shows have my respect, even if I might occasionally question specific calls or specific actions.
All that said, I've seen good shows and bad shows involving a lot of different classes, and at any given time, my preference might vary. I can think of no class, type of car, or track that is so consistently superior that one could say that a bad race of <class X> is better than a good race of <class Y> , and while I do prefer some tracks over others, even there, I've not found any one that always puts on a superior show, or always puts on a poor show - though some tend to maintain higher standards on average than others, for any given facet of the operation.
In the end, though, THEY are willing to bust their buns to put on a show for US, and for that, I thank them all.
