The point of my post is Larson's motive for the boycott threat. He and the other money teams are the ones who have a problem with the purse. Say the purse was doubled for next year's race, who would benefit? Out of the 400 teams that show up, maybe 5% have a legit shot at the A-main or winning it. Doubling the purse would benefit those 5% much more than anyone else.            If the purse was doubled the promoter has to make that up somehow. Where is that money coming from? I dont see many more cars attending and they cant cram anymore spectators in the place. It would have to come from more expensive entry fees, pit passes, admission tickets and concessions, which wouldnt matter to the 5% so much but everyone else would have to pay more to participate.           The reason 400 hundred cars show up at the Chili Bowl is because it's the Chili Bowl. Everyone wants to win THAT race. It was the same with Syracuse. Most drivers hated running the mile and spent more money that week than in half a seaon at their home track. Why did they come back every year? Was'nt the purse, they wanted to win THAT race. I think the Chili Bowl will survive without Larson if he stays home.
