Promoting Fraud in the Industry! And getting away
When are promoters, clubs, and sanctioning bodies going to be responsible for their commitments to racers? It is becoming a habit to advertise cash purses and later find a reason to cut the purse after the racers show up and the event is over! $500 is $500 short of $1,000! Start making a stand for yourself against promoters who don’t keep their word on purse amount when publicly posted or posted guaranteed. This win should be worth the $1,000 that was printed in ink several times, for the ink that it will receive! GET WITH IT OFF-ROAD PRO RACERS! You are not going to get anywhere in this industry if you allow being “PUSHED around” and “taken for granted”!

OFF-ROAD - Woodford Stops Garrahan at Hollister
“Woodford's first victory at Hollister also earned him the $500 bounty for beating five-time winner Brian Garrahan, who was third on his Suzuki RM250”
And where is Kawasaki? Why isn’t Kawasaki standing up for their racer and demanding the FULL BOUNTY for Woodford?
The bottom line is the game is called “fraud” and these promoters, clubs, and sanctioning bodies are all responsible for making fools out of you racers!
If something isn’t done by you racers this will continue by promoters, clubs, and sanctioning bodies committing this fraud.
Signed, Frustrated with the entire purse shortcomings in the motorcycle racing industry!
This needs to be acknowledged and dealt with!
*Forward into the industry, Thank you!
