I understand reduction in business revenues causes reductions in costs. What troubles me about the second reduction in purses is:
- The wording in the letter about extensive discussions between NHRA and pro teams and their representatives. If Terry McMillen has contacted a bunch of the teams and can't find one team that was part of the extensive discussions, I have to question the integrity of the letter.
- The cut represents a 70% cut in purses. I would be interested to know if the top 10 employees of NHRA have taken anything close to 70% pay cuts. While NHRA has no requirement to disclose this information, it would help a lot with transparency as many posters to these chat rooms are highly suspicious of what sacrifices the people at the top have made. The teams should not be the ones to bear all the brunt of the revenue loss.
