Default What would you do !

If you raced in a 7 race series and earned 3rd pl overall and was denied. but the points were added wrong from the first race. rd 1 and rd 6 3rd in the b main got 90 pts rd 2,3,4,5 3rd in the B got 89 pt and rd 7 3rd in the B got 87 pts and you emailed the track owner with private messages for two weeks, and he blew you off and wouldnt fix the points even though he knew they were wrong , so you went on a open forum and stated the issue, then after 3 1/2 weeks he post the final points and deletes your name off the list !!

It nice to get your recognition when due, but just move on and race again. If you were due some type of cash payout for placing 3rd then i would call and talk to the owner, but if it just a trophy then i'd let it go.

Take 3 zanax and chase t down with some special "silver" Beverage hold your finger in the air high and go to a differet track. Ohh ya don't forget to breathe.

Man it sucks but I was talking to yet another racer last night that is new and his points were wrong too in that series. I doubt that there were many points given corectly. This guy is fairly new and he was scared to speak up. That's how they run over there fear based communsium. There's no other way to color it. Taing your name off the results list is just plain childish at best. It's too bad that they can't or won't run a clean program.

Over here tracks are run by clubs, so it's a little more democratic process sometimes. When a board of 5 have to agree on something, it can get ugly. Luckily we've had no such problems in my club.

That track owner does sound like a childish douche. He doesn't deserve your money.

I have overwhelming support from the racers,the same promoter runs the Norcal series,and one of the local Pros even offered to pay my entry fee's when the norcal series comes to his track !

Best answer so far! lol, seriously though, if the other racers are aware that the points are screwed then everyone should speak up and try to get a recount. If not, then take your buisness elsewhere.

How many drivers made all the races???
Just because you averaged 3rd in the B mains doesn't mean you are gonna be 3rd overall in points unless you are about the only one to make all the races and gained more points than other drivers because they didn't make all the races

Cary yes I am glad that everyone is aware !!what do you guys think of letting the series sponsors aware of what kind of a person , less than honest ,a crook even that their sponsoring his Norcal series ? He did take $150.00 in entry fees from me with out giving me what I earned ,I feel that he ripped me off!!
