You gotta be *feces*ting me...
« on: August 19, 2008, 09:10:09 PM »

After a tough year of NO live racing, I am ALL fired up to  go to Skagit for World of Outlaws over Labor Day, until I see this:

World of Outlaws $35 (FRI)
$35 (SAT)


35 *goshdarn* dineros?


Now, there's a school of thought that says 35 bucks to see the absolute best in the world at what they do is a fudging STEAL (and there's some merit to that), but there's another school of though that says that I can go the following week ,spend 25 bucks LESS at the gate and see a weekly show that will have better racing in it across 3 classes of sprint car.

The 60 bucks in gas and sundries is the same either way.

Sadly, a 65 dollar round of golf at Avalon is out of the question either way... Sad

LOL, first time I went to Phoenix (a LOOONG time ago) you could sit on the hill above the backstretch for free, and they were among the best seats in the house. You had to walk in about half a mile, further if you got there late. Nowadays, you gotta pay, and you STILL have to walk in, but I don't think it's as far...

(Bad picture with the fisheye. That nearest hill is taller and closer to the track than it looks. It's a pretty good natural grandstand)

I honestly believe this:

Speedtrack promoters are businessmen who deserve to get paid for their trouble. Not many of 'em get rich.

I'll pay it, but it's gone up about 10 bucks from the last time...

Ah, nothing better than the smell of alcohol burning at race events.

I plan to start racing again.  Next year.  I'll start a new thread.

A similar area above the coliseum in Berkeley is called "Cheapskate Hill". I'm sure such types of seating are common near venues in which the target audience has to scrounge for beer money let alone be able to afford the price of admission.

Hills like that should be zoned mandatory bring your own cooler zones.

Or ride your own.   Grin
