I think the use of the word Professional in off-road racing is just an ego thing. Who do you know that makes their living (takes a salary and pay's their bills) racing off-road? I'm not talking about owning or working in a fab shop or parts store. I would have to guess Robby Gordon would be the closest as he had sponsors paying him to race. But even now the majority of his payment comes from himself as he is Speed Energy. Bottom line is 99% of the people in the sport have other means of income. We use our disposable income to pay for our racing. This would make us all Sportsman. Thus the Pro classes should be called Sportsman classes.”
Retarded logic rules many in this recreation across the west, where racers drink and do drugs and the racing events owners allow no testing or licensing of the contestants, whatsoever. Call Pete now and you can race this weekend in Baja Mexico!
