What are your thoughts on PPV events in drag racing? The NHRA has had a subscription service in place for a while, but I think that's more similar to the NHL or MLB season tickets. and have done excellent work over the last few years covering some of the large events for free (thanks, sponsors). Dirty South No Prep tried a $5 per event PPV model last year, but I think it was abandoned after one event. Lights Out and No Mercy have been free via MMTV for years, but Duck's newest race, the Sweet 16 $100k race, will be all PPV with no media allowed to go live during the event. It will be $10 for the entire event. Do you think that people will happily pay $10 for a weekend event if this becomes the norm? I could see paying for quality coverage of some of the larger events, but PPV every weekend would, I think, hurt the sport in the long run.
