I think I can explain.
Playing a PSP event, even D4 RaceTo-2, can cost close to $700-800 per player. That's the same budget for an entire season of playing local D4 events (e.g., CTPL). A lot of teams have trouble getting enough money just to practice a couple times per month, let alone come up with that kind of cheddar for one tournament. It's just not worth it, unless someone else is footing the bill.
That said, I'll be playing the pump event because it is only one day, does not cost nearly as much, and I can watch the pro games on Saturday.
EDIT: by "budget" above, I mean the cost of 4 or 5 local events per season, not including practices in between.
