Tucson tickets are 20.00-30.00 for gen admission, no seats.
Then 70.00-150.00 plus for admission with seats. Grandstand seating 70.00-80.00 to other club type seating, over 100.00.

Rt 66 is $35 for general admission seating. I wonder if the ticket prices are set by each individual track. You wouldn't think so because I believe they rent the track.

If they can swing it, AND pull some locals in the mix to take a swing....WHY NOT??

Wonder if Bob is “all in” on this deal.... pretty grueling schedule for sure.

Anyone realize JJ and his merry band of racers have been booking races at tracks all over.... and packing the house!!

Makes me wonder if the fuel car guys would attract these crowds if they were still “allowed” to match race.....

I definitely tune into these races a lot more than the so called “pros”.... but if they stay on track with the “team” crap, it’s going to kill it for me. Handicap Kayla going to rnd 2 on freebies got pretty old.


We are all in but this is going to be expensive and grueling. I got a little sick to my stomach when the schedule came out but I know this will separate the men from the boys. We are completely self funded and get no money at all from the show. I am 100% committed to this season but unless I get some help we'll be out for anything further.

KEEP your eyes open for their sneakers getting pulled off their feet at the starting line on that NO PREP track !


The tracks are actually unprepped. They are scraped for the first 200-300 feet then scrubbed with Tide. As some rubber gets laid back down it starts to get decent on the starting line but the back half stays sketchy.

When Schedules come out I assumed it was a big advantage to them. They sell a ton of shirts and other stuff to help fund them.
The small guys with competitive cars will have a hard time hitting all the tracks.


Good luck we will try and make RT66 this year

Ya Bill and I are Facebook friends and he gave me Kenny’s number so if I ever start going fast again I may call him. Pretty sure he’s in tonight’s show as he said to tune in.

I was told by a Darlington official that NPK sets the ticket prices. He didn't specify if that was for the general admission, "special seating", or both.

With the TV exposure audience numbers I see over 1 million, you should be able to get some $$$$ assistance. This may sound off the wall but with this being an election year you could approach some PAC's or even the political party?
Have you approached major corps with an exchange agreement or sponsorship in kind where no money changes hands? Some smaller companies would do that before writing a check.
Good Luck and keep that Hemi up front.

We recently have begun speaking to a guy who will do some promoting for us. There are some irons in the fire but so far nothing for certain. One of them is a labor union local which would be a good fit...I think.

Hey Bob when you see stuff blurred out on tv is that because they are a non paying (advertising) company or is it inappropriate for tv. I see chuck getting blurred quite often.

my best guess is a combination of both, advertising and "adult stuff" that goes beyond what is "allowable" at this time.

The rule is no phone numbers or web addresses.

Who is it that has only a small section of the logo on his shirt - way lower left that’s blurred ?

It’s way too small for a phone number or web address ?

AND REALLY .... what’s up with that anyways ? The so called STARS of the program can’t puff a product or service that they want ??!!

I'm sure lewd or other tasteless stuff will be blurred as well. It's their show so they can make the rules.

Believe it or not Chuck is a good dude. He gets a whole lot of [censored] from fans, though. Some of it may be deserved but he can't walk 5 feet without somebody heckling him. He does a lot of betting on the starting line and I've caught him several times betting on us. One day I notice that he had taken us and won and I walked by him and told him to keep his money on us. He told me that he bet us a bunch over the season and won most of them. He did say that it was getting harder to get a bet down on us toward the end of the year.

He doesn't strike me as a bad guy (probably an insanely loyal friend) but when he spit on that guy ages ago he lost me. No respect for that- at all. If you're that mad, fight the person but spitting is off limits. I was always pretty impressed with his driving when he was on small tires- I certainly won't take that away from him.
