While i dont race SM, i have been racing SRF for a while. I have been thinking about coming back to racing but i have to admit the time on track is an issue for me. I use to drag race at nhra divisionals (like scca regionals) 3-4 guaranteed shots in 2 days and then more if you make it past each round. Sitting at a track for 3 days for 30 seconds or less of time in the car , it was getting boring. Yes i know its about the people but we still go to the track to be on track. Now scca regional without a practice day 4 20 minute sessions, after towing, scca fees, lodging etc.. not to mention if there is a yellow flag or something, how much time are we getting. I know racing is expensive but i also know that sitting in the pits gets old. I know a few people lately who have turned to DEs because they are on track way more than a racing an event. I get it, its not racing but how many races are we actually doing at an event, 1 may be 2? The rest are qual races which still take your best lap time and position really doesnt come in to play and practice.
