World Street Challenge BAD CHECKS

Sorry this has to be my first post with you guys, but I just found out today that my two checks from WSC1 bounced. Just wondering if anyone else is having these problems. 700 bucks worth of checks in the can. Apparently we may never see the money.

Looks like you joined there just to share the bad news as well.

I'd also be pissed.

There are apparently a lot of people in the same boat as I am. World Race Events who put on the event has fell off the face of the earth and they hired a lawyer. They say the checks will be made good, who knows when that will be.

Yeh i want as many people to know what crooks these people are, so no one show up at anything they ever try and promote. Getting screwed out of $700 sucks, and i know there's a lot bigger checks out there than mine.

i attended all but one of the world ford challenges and raced at most of them. i am truly sorry to see the event go down in flames.
....sorry your reward for wining or placing has not been honored. if 700 is all you lose/get screwed out of this year i would say your not doing too bad. hope things dont get you too wired out......fwiw bob

I know three people that won money that weekend. Two of the checks went through. One didn't. Its really a shame that this race was such a flop this year. We had 10 good years when it was a Ford only race. We always looked forward to it. This year when they let everyone in nobody showed up. Attendence was horrible. I assumed they would pro-rate the money or something because with all the advertising they did they had to have lost their a#@ on that race. Instead of pro-rating it they wrote bad checks. Kind of sad really.

I know I expected to hear the whole weekend that they were going to cut the purse, but they never did. Attendance was terrible for sure, but you would think an event this size would expect the worse and have enough money to cover their butt.

Yeh that definitely seemed like a scam to me too. I also know that one of the $10,000 outlaw winners from last year had a hell of a time getting his check to go through. These people are thieves and i'll never be back.

As far as the WSC1 goes, i'm hearing that at least a hundred or more checks could be bad.
