I don't think it's loaded or bogus at all. In conversations with people I'm hearing more and more that the $300+++ comps are out of their reach at this time. I know it's not all teams, some are less "fiscally challenged" than others so it doesn't bother them but I can see how it adds up after the rise in meat,fuel etc.

An example as I've heard described, a $300 comp, add power, upgrade to a spot that'll actually hold your rig quickly jumps to around $450. Then they explained it's a $10k or less payout so even if they win they could lose.

As a judge/vendor I don't have knowledge of all the expenses that teams face, I'll bet they're as steep if not higher than what ours are on a per event basis.
