Pretty sure it's a $3 fee at Granite.

If tracks were to report a sales tax on every ticket & pit pass sold that would add up to a substantial sum each year. With cash you can dodge that. As tight as the margins are for some facilities that could be a make or break deal.

If tracks refuse to offer an electronic means to pay then the least they could do is put an ATM or two on premises.

The days of "cash is king" are quickly coming to an end, sadly.

I just noticed in the last month or so, gas stations are flashing 2 different prices, when I still had my business, in the old days, when credit cards were all handled by hand, and at a cost to the merchant, I made it very clear, that I wasn't going to be the one who took it in the shorts when card was flashed, some people actually thought I got paid for taking them, the margin was really short to begin with, so to keep the doors open, it was a necessity.

Itís certainly not free on the merchants end to accept plastic, Iíve had to negotiate my fees a few times with the two different banks Iíve used. It takes a cut for sure but has become a necessity in todayís business climate.

Attica, OH takes credit cards but adds $1.00 per ticket. They payout by check also.

Lincoln Park Speedway takes credit cards and it really slows the line up a whole bunch. So bring cash!

I hate standing in line waiting for someone to get there credit card to work. Seems to be getting really popular to swipe instead of paying cash though. How long until Apple Pay is going to be used at race tracks?😂
