The only way to explain this is price gouging. And NHRA is forcing you to enter over the Internet, not providing any other way to enter, therefore they know they have you, so they will just charge whatever they want in service fees because its the only way to enter. Price gouging is a legal the last I knew.

It is my understanding that the "fee" for these things is based on the ticketing website the specific venue uses. Bowling Green and Columbus happened to use the same site...but Topeka used a different site. Each site has their own fees that have nothing to do with NHRA and that money doesn't go to NHRA.

That said...$37 seems really high. I cannot find the links to sign up for STL anywhere...so perhaps they noticed an issue and shut down the links to fix it. Hopefully, if that's the case, the issue was with the amount the site was charging.

Terry Indy sounds way better and I heard track prep is always great. What the old saying “penny wise and dollar foolish”

The fees are charged by a third party, not NHRA, not WWTR. They’re trying to find a solution but if it doesn’t improve, just think...fuel prices are down this year...suck it up and go race and maybe things go back to normal next year.
