Could the professionals match race without fans. Perhaps they could have 2 in each of the professional categories match race under the lights without fans??? Can they come up with financing to try this on TV???

Randy, do you know if NHRA still consider match racing as a test session and limit how many tests they can have? They might have done away with that but it killed the match racing when they did that.

You do realize the whole point of match racing was that it's a tool for promoters to bring in fans.....correct?
Who's going to pay for the teams to show up and race if there are no spectators?

They should hook up with PPV and an online gaming deal..work out a split on the gambling profits the house takes.

Match racing doesn't generate enough money to make it feasible for professional teams to compete. Like Randy said, match racing is a thing of the past . . . . . . . .

Clay Millican and Dom Lagana TF teams did two Match races in 2019 (U.S. 131 Martin MI and MDIR Budds Creek Md.) I don't think they did it for free. Tracks put up the money they will come if time permits for the teams. Scott Palmer also does match races.
