I don't blame anyone for that!
I sort of remember something like this when the Chicago Power Boat Club was putting on their first big run. PRA wanted in, they insisted on raising the entry fee and putting out a lot of demands while the club did most of the work. The club bowed out and put on their own non profit run. On the flip side putting on a non profit run has it's challenges since you are depending on a lot of people to be involved in all aspects of a major event without paying them, their only motivation is doing it for a charity or the love of it. Sometimes that can burn you out and in the case of the CPBC along with the sagging economy most likely the reason they are taking a break from running the event.

It has to be hard to be a for profit event company and have to compete with a club event so I can understand Taylor's concern, but it still would be poor behavior to outright ask people to not attend, so I hope that statement is a bit overstated, good luck to both runs.

So now I see why many of you stopped racing and went to poker runs. No drama, no alphabet soup, and no political BS

I hate it when an episode of "As The Prop Turns" ends with a "to be continued..." then they never show part 2....
