Why is collegiate racing so much more fun? Is it just not being in the real world yet or what? =]

Not all USAC teams are strangers riding in the same kit... at least on mine, we all know each other and try to do teamwork in races too (even in the 4's).

Fwiw I have fun at my races, though I didn't race in college so I guess I can't compare.

Also, don't most USAC clubs reimburse race fees? Most around here do, anyway.
