120 total entries @ $30/entry and 2X entries thru the gate (240@$10) that works out to a $6k day. I don't know how that works out rental, insurance, and labor wise to make money. It does sound fun though.

The middle class is more educated and urban than it used to be. The rural or sub-rural middle class has definitely taken a hit in the last 20 years, mainly from a flight out of the areas to cities with more opportunity.

I'm surprised that there isn't a bigger effort by manufacturers and dealers to create and maintain tracks or riding areas near where they do business. Also a dealer or dealer satellite location at the track like alot of hobby shop setups with rc tracks. ... more »

Do we know if Webb is one of the WADA 24 hour surveillance athletes? Reed and RV have talked about being on the list where a guy shows up anywhere you are anytime for a test.

Integrating the motor is the easy part, integrating the batteries and sufficient management system is the hard part.

The idea that if a vehicle doesn't do everything YOU need from a vehicle or you don't like the styling or drivetrian it shouldn't exist is completely ridiculous. If you don't like seafood, do you complain to everyone around you when you see shrimp cocktail ... more »

I like the look, except for the low roof line of the cab and I wonder if it is even able to be driven with the tailgate down. I applaud the bold move with the retro-futuristic look.
