    You make a really good point, but on the other hand, with USACi they allow competitors to compete in more than one class so there are a few guys that compete in two or three classes. Either way it's still a lot more money to spend on trophies to have that many classes. If you do a dB Drags then you have to do Bass Race too, thats 12 more trophies there. With USACi it's the head judge that takes care of the trophies, but he still has a lot to buy so the costs go up. From a financial point your better off running a few classes of your choice, as long as you can get all the various systems in your classes without making it an unfair advantage to some.

    Most of us have had finals invites. DB Drag is only $100 for a 1X. Name one Drag show in the U.S. that has all classes full this year. Trophies aren't necessary at a 1X. Most of the 1Xs I've been to in the northeast give out certificates. DB Draggers are usually just interested in the points from a 1X.

    While trophies aren't necessary to some, most new competitors want something more than a piece of paper. All the dB Drags shows I've run here in New England have all had a trophy for at least 1st place if not all classes. It used to **** me off when I'd drive a few hours to a drags show and get a piece of paper, to me that was an insult to competitors. And I'm pretty sure most new competitors feel the same way. The only ones who don't care are the ones with tons of trophies and the ones that go just for points. At the same time, it costs too much $$$ to buy trophies for all the USACi or Drags classes, never mind the fee that has to be paid to run the show. So it's no wonder some people don't buy trophies for Drags and USACi shows.

    yea but then u leave out regular people from coming to the shows who do not come for the points. i know its retarded but i like getting the trophies and i am sure other people do as well ..... but if i was givin a certificate i would never go. thats just ridiculous. u pay all that money to compete and u get a piece of paper ? i think u would lose alot of people. trophies aren't that expensive. definitly cheaper than the entry fee's each person gives.

    Good point, but that all depends on the size and quantity ordered. I've bought some trophies in the past that cost me more than the entry fee, a few shows I've spent a lot more on trophies than we took in from all the entries. But yeah, trophies are much better than certificates at any show.

    I'm sorry guys. When you've been competing as long as I have, you get sick of trophies. They start to clutter your house. Two years ago, I threw away aroud 40 trophies.
    Manny said at one time he was up over 300 trophies.

I will not let myself, friends or customers associate with any event he is hosting. None of my peeps are going to the Proline show because of him. It has nothing to do with Proline. I know you can do better that using this **** Rico.
    JL audio paid for him to promote my show thats all they'er doing You 've been with me for years and you are also my friend you have always been positive and i have always listened to you even with the trophies..lol.. I will stop by next week to see you i didnt want to take your time last month when i was there i saw you were busy with pete from Alpine..

    Slapshow classes. Or do Iasca classes. And there is plenty of websites that sell trophies for the down low. I have a web site I have used before good prices..Both of those shows. Have a good amount of classes but not crazy like Dbdrag and Usaci.

    Slapshow classes are a great choice, not too many of them but it includes all the normal stock and super stock classes, they also have an Ultimate class in case someone comes out with something thats been modified in front of the "B" pillar. Only thing they don't have is an Amateur or rookie class, but that can be added so the car show type systems can also compete and not get smoked by the really loud ones.

    I know around my area the car show guys/girls , Id say atleast 90% of them never compete in the SPL outside of the car shows. Liek they never go to a dbdrag show. So a few times I made a class just for the car show ppl. Added to the slapshow classes. Didnt have any complaints. A few ugggs but nothin to go crazy about. Mostly the car show ppl know they are there just for show and are not worried about winning any SPL records.
