Oahe Speedway by the numbers
We would like to attempt to break even this season. We went over the track expenses and what it takes to run the track. There will be a budget this year and we have to stay within that budget.
Ways we are going to save money:
- We are not hiring a maintenance person.
- We are looking at vendors that have competitive pricing
Ways to promote the track
- Help distribute flyers
- Different advertising
- Try and get into the schools to do program
- Payouts will be based on a % of tech cards brought in per class. There will be a minimum payout though and it will never go less than that. We will post the payouts and the minimum.
