Does anyone know why there is a Significant reduction in the Payout this year? I have a educated guess. Yet I'm still curious.

Went from a practice and three race nights to a practice and two race nights, thus the lesser payout for the finale. Conversely there's now more money on Friday, and Saturday's purse is better than 99% of other 360 c.i. Sprint Car one-day shows.

Basically with tons of specials every weekend, we thought it was worth a try to shake things up a bit this year, where fans and racers don't have to take off as long, while still seeing two good shows with two good purses.

Just a day and time where tracks have to try different things to see what does and doesn't work.

- Ben

I went to my 1st STN in 96 & it was 2 day show then..I've been to the 4 day show as well. I'm sure all the die-hards would prefer it to be a 7 day show if they could have their way Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

For a good percentage of the racer's & fans..their budgets start running thin this time of year so I can understand the change & if you truly love sprint cars it will still be a awesome show either way to start winding the racing year down. I've been to a few that's been pretty cold too so the earlier date & 2 nights will probably be perfect for now.
