Oh...I'm not angry Admiral, I just want others who read this board to know that when your insurance goes up $300.00 per event, and your track fee goes up $400.00, the corner worker bill goes up, then someone has to pay. Unfortunately, costs go up for everyone including those that want to just watch.

In defense of NASA, I would say that they would rather charge their racers $10.00 more to race rather then $20.00 or $25.00 more and let the people who want to watch pay the difference. I'm sure they have a budget so if they don't have any spectators then the sanctioning body would have to eat the cost since the racers have a fixed fee. They won't come back and say, "well we have to charge another $10.00 per racer guys because we didn't have enough spectators." They have to eat the cost difference.

Like you said, everything is going up...even when I went to the MCA's Mustang 40th, they charged an entry fee just to look; however, I do understand your logic.
