My point is that if you are not getting a full field of 360/358's, why not go there and try to make money..... The purse they are paying far exceeds that of any track that is just running 358s. So why not try to make some money if you are a 358 driver. That was all that I meant.... Nothing else...
What your saying doesn't make sense though to a team that is on a super shoe string budget and quite frankly if they blow up a motor or twist a chassis they are done for the year. Lets be real here. Selinsgrove is harder on motors than Trailsway, and Lincoln. You are also much more likely to destroy a chassis or more in a wreck at Selinsgrove vs Lincoln or Trailway. Granted you can destroy a motor or chassis at any track, but given the greater speeds at Selinsgrove it doesn't take a scientist to figure out which is gonna tear up more stuff more often.
Yeah the purse is higher, but what if you don't win and tear up stuff. You have to be willing to lose some stuff in order to gain, and I'll bet that quite a few of the 358 teams just aren't willing to take a chance with their gear right now. Maybe later on in the year, but it's awful early yet to tear something up and sit while you pay to put something back together out of your own pocket.
