Repair, replace or sell a rim?

So after a mishap at the track with a buddy I ended up with a damaged rear rim on my 1299s. Question is, is it worth fixing? Should I just look for a used one or do I just sell my front and not worry about having a backup set of wheels?

I have wondered about the durability of a repaired wheel. This bike does both street and track duty at the moment since its by favorite one to ride. I have a set of carbon rims on it now but that's why I was thinking about keeping a second set of rims.

Prince Albert can probably give the best advice on selling your rim.
