We may have a seat available, depending on whether or not team members decide to make the trip.  I'll check back after we're accepted.

What are the cost? I know CMP like the back of my hand but am not looking to spend a fortune for a ride. Also what class are you running in?

Sorry to hijack!

We are coming to CMP for our 4th race this year and having issues with some guys sticking to the team.  We have 3 guys who are dedicated and 2 flakes. 

How does it normally work adding a driver to a team?  Do they normally pay their driver fee and anything on the car?  Just curious as to what's deemed fair.


Thanks! 

See yall at CMP in the USDA Prime Hyundai tiburon.

Re: Looking for ride at Carolina MP in Sept

Usually it seems that people try to estimate the total for expenses for the race and split it between drivers. Some teams record every penny and split it however, some teams pay the estimate and then make corrections based on what was actually spent. For my car, since I'm a one man team, I just ask a given amount for a given race based on the expected split of drive time.

One thing I think that every team owner will tell you is that if you're not paid before the race, nothing is guaranteed.
