Just curious to hear from others that drag race if their track allows buy backs and what you think of them.At the track I go to they allow you to buy your way back in if you lose in the first round.Personally I think this sucks.If you lose go home.I know the track does it just for the extra money,and I know they need to make money to stay open.
Here (in my opinion) is the problem with buybacks.In the first round if you win then everyone who lost buys back in then what have you acomplished by winning your first race?
At one race I won my first round and the second round.In the third round I lost to someone who I had beat my first race.He had bought his way back in.This was a race that paid $1000 to first place.My problem is that after I had beat him he was able to buy back in and get 2 chances at the money.After I lost to him I was out,no 2nd chance.
Why not just allow 1 buyback no matter what round you lose in?
At least that way everyone gets the same chance.At this race buyback was $25.Who would not spend that for another chance for $1000.
