I can tell you this when we won in87 we made close to 20g with contingencies or last nat. win with cont.7g
We won TA/FC at the 2009 Las Vegas Nationals (October event), and with contingencies we won about $11,000. When we won the 2012 Winternationals we won about $7,200. All the contingency sponsors had left. We did get manufacture credits on future purchases from a handful of our suppliers. We used to joke how the super stockers and super gas racers with all of their contingency decals would win twice what we won.
