Default Re: Pay outs for 2013

This story sounds very familiar to a preceding organization labeled SCRA that was formed after the IHRA cut class racing out some time back. We found out then it was next to impossible for racers themselves to keep an organization alive for any period of longevity. Experience shows it WILL WORK, it just needs people NOT IN COMPETITION as active car owners. A marketing person is needed and it COULD be good for everyone----it is out there is done correctly.

Let me add this.....I remember that points money was not paid at the beginning of the season but "promised" at the beginning. We did get it eventually but it was very awkward telling champions at the banquet to "wait" for whenever. RULE NO 1---don't advertise a points fund on credit until the end of the season, sponsors need to pay up front. Racers get worn out with that kind of responsibility and pressure. I believe something very similiar happened to the gear jammer club events.

Cool Re: Pay outs for 2013

I think it's time for a good meeting, before we start racing at VMP... I think the Winning Racer's have waited long enough !!!! Sad to see this happen again ...

I hadn't planned to go to VMP.....but after reading all this, even though my stuff needs work, I WILL be there! Being a lifelong series sponsor, I had better see where the sponsorship dollars are! Scott, there is NO reason that you haven't responded to this! You're on facebook, why no answer to my message?

Scott I think it would be in your best interest to reply to this discussion. EMBEZZLEMENT is a serious matter, and this won't be swept under the rug and forgot about. Our hard earned money went into this organization each and every year as a sponsor as well as many other great people and businesses.

Hey guy/girls, I just wanted to let everyone know that I met w/ Scott today to try and get these issues resolved. I really hate seeing a program that I personally put a lot of years of hard work, time and effort into fall apart. If you will give me about a week I should have an update and hopefully can ease everyones mind. If anyone would like to call me w/ questions in the meantime I'm available at (919)210-2243.
