But then get all wired up if someone posts who won? Most of the same ones that are bitching are also the same ones that talk that bullshit about only liking radial or 10.5 racing...LOL

I am a member and have a current NHRA Competition licence because I have to have one to run my class. I use to watch the events on TV every weekend years ago but as I got older and they became more and more commercialized I lost interest completely. I like to watch racing and less than 40% of what they now put on TV is actual racing. Another thing that bothers me is the way the Sportsman racers have been treated over the years. Yeah I know its the Fuel cars and Prostocks that puts the fans in the seats, but its the Sportsman racers that built the NHRA and that actually makes it possible for the event to take place. Its the same way in other series too, the fans come to see the Promods, 10.5 and Limited Street cars, but without the revenue of the index class cars very few race promoters would be sucessful. I dont bash the NHRA, (except for 4 wide) I just dont watch it.

You think these promoters are making the cake off of the index classes?
Do you have reading comprehension problems? I said without the revenue produced by the index car counts there are alot of promoters that couldnt afford to put on the events with those big payouts.

And if you average the cost of the tech card plus 4 crew for the weekend, 65 of those index cars bring in over $17,000 per event. It might not seem like much to you, but it is to a promoter on the day after a race.

Not trying to be a smart ass but if they aren't ran to make money, then why are they ran? I don't think many promoters would run them at a loss.

No, they dont want to lose money, but i'm betting they arent doing it with hopes of turning any sizeable profits...Maybe i'm wrong, but I dont think I am...

F U C K the Nazi Hot Rod Association I don't even hold a license for them any more. They treat anyone other than John Force and a few of the other pro's like crap. They could give less than a damn about any sportsman racing, hell, look how long it took them to give Pro-Mod any air time. IHRA rules in the Sportsman area, I wouldn't be surprised to see some 10.5 stuff in IHRA next year.

I don't give two shits about the NHRA or tv coverage of NHRA events or if anyone posts results before they air. I have never opened my national dragster, it goes straight to the recycle bin. I send them money for my comp lic so I can race. After that, I really don't give a fuck. End.
