Then don't go in the pits or don't go at all. It seems to me these prices have been the same for this weekend for the last few years now.

How much does it cost to walk in the sidelines at an Eagles game, or sit on the bench with Pirates, Sixers, or Penguins? You can't even get there, but you can walk the pits for $40-45. Pretty good deal.

What about the fact that the race paid $50,000 to-win and not $3,600?

got no problem with increased pit passes for big shows but here's a first for me. i heard there was a track this weekend having a big show that made drivers entered in 2 classes buy 2 pit passes. i can understand 2 event registration fees if there are such things for their events but 2 pit passes (admissions)? that's a new one on me.
My OPINIONS are just that and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of anyone or any track I am associated with!

Good post, sometimes the obvious needs to be stated when people don't seem to grasp it on their own.:uzi:

Well based on the logic of what the race pays in relation to the purse. Why then did the Jim Nace National Open at Selinsgrove cost $40 for the pits and the race paid $12000. Seems like they were at least $20 grand short for the winner.

Also I always thought a pit pass was to cover the insurance the track has on the participants : the racers. The insurance does not know if it is a regular race or a big special event.

Why don't the tracks call it what it is a entrance fee, and just charge $100 per car but then they would not rake in the money. We racers have got to be some of the dumbest people because we are the only sport that pays to play. From go-karts to Nascar we are all stupid.

I don't think the pit passes cover insurance for the racers. Otherwise why would racers always have to try and sue to get money for their hospital bills. I'm not sure what the extra money is for, maybe just deter the fans from being in the pits. Everyone that buys a put pass signs away their rights to get any compensation for injuries that occur. To my knowledge the only insurance a track has is for the common spectator, and for rain outs. No track looks out for the people that put the show on and put money in their pockets. Like the last guy said, racers are stupid from go carts to NASCAR.
Injured drivers funds which are handled mostly by old drivers are the only thing that helps pay bills.
