Yes the purse might be lower but you will probably get twice the competiors and twice the action for the spectators because money will still be on the line.

I think its going to be tough to get the average joe that wants to start trying these type of events to come out and drop $300 unless they know they have a good shot at winning. Have a lower entry fee, put on a great event, everyone has fun, money is won, and everyone comes back the next year.

im in no way bashing your race. I would like to run it, im just trying to help you guys out.
I greatly appreciate your input. You make some very valid points. We discussed it tonight, and all involved decided that we are going to stick with the $300 entry fee, go for the big pot, and put on the best event we can. We walked the course tonight and agreed that we have the makings for a high quality course, that will give everyone a great challenge, and offer the crowd a great show. We all honestly agree that we may not be catering this event towards the average wheeler with a stock to slightly modified rig, but we will be offering those type of events for those folks in the future.

Thanks again, and hope we see you at the event.
