    I was talking with Brian (Desert Guy) and, from what I remember, it's at least $2,000 per truck, per race, just for fees, gas, parts, prep, etc., and that is if nothing breaks.

    the true cost of racing is in the logistics, smaller sanctioning bodies will charge $350-$500 to enter a race the larger sanctioning bodies $900-$1500 depending on the race........ pre-running, Race fuel average 3-7 miles per gallon so what ever the length of the race times fuel cost, example a 200 mile race is 200 divided by 3 miles per gallon times $5 bucks for gas to be on safe side and add another 11 gallons (Spare Dump Can Incase you need extra Fuel) so that comes out to $388 x 2 (prerunning and race day) so thats $776, now factor in average prep on truck is about $300-$600 of replacing parts from previous race or repair from previous race or upgrades, then tires, Project are $578.00 x 4 tires $2312.00 if your lucky you didnt puncture one the race before so you might get 2-3 races on a set of tires so divide $2312 by 3 so average tire cost is $770, then food cost of feeding the team average $200.00 for 3 day trip , lodging or cost to take out the RV $150 and maybe another $100 for stupid random purchases while traveling, yeah it adds up quick, for a smaller sanctioning body local race (Barstow/Lucern/Plaster City) is about $2500.00 to race, Baja is $7500-$10,000 for a point to point Baja 1000, so start saving you pennies!!!!

    I will be arriving to Plaster City with Nick Thursday night 11-12pm
