This is a two sided coin. You want he race but you don't want to pay such high prices. My thought was Andretti was big timing people by asking for renewals 11 months early, Indy is the only place that even comes close to asking for renewals that quickly.
The big problem is for Saturday you only get the one race, which doesn't last 2 hours and there's not even a lights race for that price. That's just too steep. For comparison my top row main grandstand seats were $64 now $79, this week at Iowa top row tall grandstand $60. Almost the top of the NE Vista for the 500, $85.
The Garage, Paddock and pit pass all together is the same as the two separate this year, and if it includes GA Friday that's the only bargain. The big bump on Friday is not going to help at all. Like most people here said, there are a lot of fests in Wisconsin and this is double what any others cost. Everybody patted Michael on the back for having the Fest in the infield but I didn't think it was the best idea to put it there and thinking that people will be willing to pay for that again is a mistake. If he simply had it outside the track, charged everyone $5 or even $10 to get on the grounds Friday he'd do better.
Like everything else in INDYCAR, if you jump on the bandwagon and praise someone to high heaven right off the bat, that praise is short lived.
Those of you who want to complain about ISC, ask yourselves what you paid for Chicagoland tickets to the last race there and believe me when I tell you the last race at MIS I bought tickets that Friday night in Jackson from the trailer the track had there for $25. And they paid the sanctioning fee.
