    NOPE-

    I prefer to pay, if the money I pay to participate goes to charities; or at least some of it.

    Maybe some does at this event, but nothing was mentioned.

    The Wheeling event is where I'll be!

    Hmmm, looks like it's strictly a commercial venture, designed to line the pockets of a few.

    $35.00 a car is ridiculous, to maybe win a $10.00 trophy......Why??
