True, I get that. I was fully expecting the day license fee. I was more afraid that I was gonna have to plunk down $70 where the last 12 years I raced Sea Otter, it was just the day license. $10 is no big deal. It makes for a $75 ride to get my ass handed to me, but that isn't a huge amount of money. Now, if that one race suddenly cost me $135, then I would have pulled out and just watched. That would have been no longer worth it to me. As it is, I'm on the fence if I'll race next year for $75.

The full year's USAC license fee on top of that might have pushed me over the limit.... at least for racing.
