It looks like NHRA is paying some of the low dollar fuel teams to show-up (booked in show/match race style)to fill the top 16.Is it just me or does anyone else feel that way.I'm sure that NHRA doesn't want gaps in there pro fields.

If you're referring to Seattle last weekend and Ron Smith, that's incorrect. Ron is local to Seattle/Kent.

Ron does it as a hobby, and only attends Seattle and Sonoma (if he don't blow up his 2 bullets, which he did this year) every year.

Since there was only 16 cars, he got the qualifying cash, but as you know, went out first round.

They didn't pay him to 'show up'.

They have a set payout for a 16 car field.I think the lowbuck guys are smart for going.Make a little money and get some track time with the pros.

NHRA has made no changes to fill the fields,the payout has been the same all year.

Are you serious? NHRA is paying no one to show! Alot of the lower budget cars that arent in the count dont run the three race western swing! You guys that complain that NHRA raised fees think that major sponsors worry over a few hundred bucks! I dont like it either but no one has a gun to your head making you run their events! Myself,running S/P in the big buck bracket races has been fun!
