    Yeah, she was being nice and talking straight rental cost, that is usually enough to get people to understand what we're up against. When they don't is when I bring up the other expenses. Basically total costs at the expensive ones run 20-25 thousand a day, sometimes higher. Cheap ones are still 13-15k per day.

    Total expenses for an event day yeah. CMP is more than Talladega but don't have those figures near me.

    What about tracks like Gingerman? I helped put on a drift event there a few years ago and it was about $8-10K/day.

    This was my first year racing, and I ran CCS Midwest Region (got help from friends and a team as long as i ran that series)

    However, next year they only seam to be running BlackHawk Farms the whole time aside from Round 1.. I dont really feel like running the same track over and over again..

    So as of now I plan to convert to WERA. ( I live in west MI so Grattan is super close anyway, as well as Gman)

    I know CCS use to run Gman but they stopped..

    I'm new/ish to bike racing but I spent a long time racing cars.. Just spit balling here..

    Every time we rent Gingerman less people show up than come to Grattan. I don't get it.

    Blackhawk was/is always tough being on the other side of Chicago for the majority of our racers up that way. Also not really enough racers on that side of the lake for both us and CCS to draw from so splitting things up would just hurt us both and that does no one any good.

    RRP Kinda Superbikey

    And didn’t Gingerman even repave and expand the track?

    Yep. No change in turnouts for us and I'd guess CCS too. Same as CMP and redoing the tight sections that had the most complaints.

    NJMP is just too expensive and VIR had no dates for us :(

    She is asking to make plans for July.
    I am wondering if the dates for Buttonwillow have been finalized.

    No but thanks for the reminder - had some email issues in the fall and have to double check things.

    Huh, did I not do a 2020 schedule thread? Oh well, Buttonwillow will be August 15-16. Looked at the normal temp cycle and hopefully it'll be a better shot a cooler than mid July was. Of course my date selection was limited because I'm an idiot...
