    Im sure all those checks are gonna clear.

  2. Terry Eames says:

    As am I.

  3. Debra Arena says:

    Yeah, what about 2012 checks also??

  4. Ian Andersen says:

    I hope real checks come unlike the imaginary ones like last year. It is only fitting purse checks are being sent out just in time for banquet tickets.hmmmm. It’s a sad situation that seems to happen more and more frequent. The truth is that most teams and competitors love for the track and competition out weighs another screw job.

  5. Debra and Ian,
    According to the management of the Waterford Speedbowl all competitors have been compensated for all events during the 2012 season, and that was actually taken care of quite a while ago. If you do have any issues with not getting paid going to back to 2012 you probably need to take that up with the management of the Speedbowl directly rather than here.

  6. Debra Arena says:

    i’m really not quite sure who you got your information from, but we have never received payment for the final race of 2012. And yes, I have notified Waterford Speedbowl regarding this issue several times through email and have never received a response .
