Melissa Paris to skip Barber +

Apparently lacking the funds like a lot of other people. She may not be showing some here earlier promise, but this sucks to see for any racer out there. Good luck to anyone out there trying to make things happen.

They're not that deep. A superbike win is worth $2500.

yeah, i'm pretty sure josh hayes isn't gettin paid big bucks by Graves either. most of the other sponsors just give free stuff. i'd be willing to bet he makes less than 100k year including his sponsorships.

to race privateer in the AMA daytona sportbike class, i'm sure she spends around 75k a season. (without a buncha crashing and blowing up)

Painful to see for anyone (at any lvl) of racing.

If I ever pick the correct 6 numbers, one of my priorities will be helping out up and coming racers.
