All-star tour is going to be less based on travel and show dates. Right now the biggest cost for these owners is toter and trailer. They keep getting bigger and longer. You get past those costs, many go to the trade shows and make as many manufacturer deals as possible. Most start the season with 5 to 6 cars in various forms of completion.  Today many go to were the price is right. Motors are without question the single biggest expense for guys that travel. A new team just starting out would spend  probably close to 1 million. 



Didn't there used to be some kind of deal where if you were so high in points the year before you would get a toter for the next year?  Speaking of this I heard back in the early 2000s Steve Kinser basically only had to pay for his motors and that was at a signifigantly reduced price.  From what I heard he had a deal with Maxim, Sander and so on to where he was given all this stuff.  Then at the end of the year he would sell the leftover rollers for somewhere around $10,000 a peice.  Was this true?
