As a result of last night's election, how long can WERA survive as a profitable business? Through no fault of their own, grids are dwindling, look at what has happened to Endurance. I wager due to a combination of rising gas prices (soon to be $5/gal for 87 unl everywhere, diesel stubbornly remains @$4/gal, $10-50/gal for 'race' fuel), & ever increasing unemployment, 2013 will be the last "full" season. Add on increasing EPA regulation & insurance requirements, there will no longer be enough entries to make it a viable business model. A region may only be 4 races, even in the mighty SE, in 2014. After that, I can't see it in the Sportsmans format. National Challenge may survive. Discuss. I realize this won't earn me any friendship points, but I don't think I'll be able to afford more than 1 or 2 races next year, & I have a trailer full of 'race only' bikes.
