I'm OK with increases in spectator rates as well. It's a destination attraction after all. Disneyland sure does not forget to charge. Another interesting way would be to increase the charge for additional crew passes.

Realistically, it's one of the greatest shows on earth.  Why should the hotels be the only ones making money?

5 days of amateur racing at Road America for the June Sprints sets you back $70.00, with advance tickets discounted to $55.00, which is about the price of a movie per day.

If you keep it too cheap, you might not be able to keep it.

Start early, avoid the rush... our reservations were confirmed a couple of months ago... not in the big 3, we are in the little 6... for the last 15 years or so  :-D

stainless, M-6 is a great place but too far from the casino. 
I am always so busy during SW, i only have a little spare time to hit the casino.  This is critical because i like to win back TFA's expenses. It always takes me at least an hour to clear $8-9,000.

Got my luxury room at the Montego Bay.  Five nights for a total of $1212.20.  As gracious as they were about a quick refund last year, it takes a lot of the sting out of the price.  The nightly rates were $259 for Friday - Sunday and dropped to $129 on Monday and $109 on Tuesday.
