IBCA and nonsanctioned is WAY cheaper than KCBS. Or it is for me. Luckily we are breaking even (first year, 7 comps). There is no way we could do that with a $6k-$20k trailer.
That being said, if you can win gas money and/or entry fee.... we would have spent that much money on the meat any way.
Also, if you think comps are expensive never buy a boat. Ever.

You are a hard guy for me to contact. Hit the email button and send me an email. If you ask nicely, I'll tell you where a $20,000 IBCA contest is going to be held next year. Hope to meet some of you guys there.
